Geospatial Systems Analyst (Deadline: April 20, 2017)

The UBC Faculty of Forestry is a world leader in forestry research and education, and provides a focus for forestry in British Columbia and throughout Canada. Forestry is an inherent component of Canadian life both economically and socially with forests making a vital contribution to moderating climate, filtering air and water, regenerating soils, and preventing erosion. Canada is, therefore, required to respond to both national and international protocols related to climate change and the sustainability of its forests. This requires forest resource information to be regularly measured and monitored to provide timely and accurate information. The Department of Forest Resources Management (FRM) within the Faculty aims to excel in education and research for the conservation and sustainable management of forests and woodlands. The Department provides outstanding education that is interdisciplinary, international, and experiential, including an accredited forestry degree; and fosters an interdisciplinary, innovative research environment that attracts world class graduate students and scholars.

From forests-to-flight: Decarbonizing the aviation sector

The International Panel on Climate Change has postulated that, if left unchecked, we will likely see a 3.7 to 4.8°C increase in the Earth’s surface temperature by the end of the century. This temperature increase is likely to result in very disruptive and expensive events, such as rising sea-levels and extreme storms. Growing more trees, capturing CO2 and finding alternative, renewable sources of energy are all ways to help mitigate this temperature rise.
