Arden Burrell

Dr. Arden Burrell studies large scale changes of the boreal forest. His work focuses on the use of remote sensing to understand and quantify the impact of wildfires, land use and climate change on these ecosystems, and how their responses will change in the future.

Dr. Burrell completed his Ph.D. in 2019 at the University of New South Wales Climate Change Research Centre where he focused on separating land degradation, climate variability and climate change in dryland regions using remote sensing. He also spent a year working as a postdoctoral research associate for the University of Leicester looking at boreal forest fires in Siberia.

Selected Publications

Anthropogenic climate change has driven over 5 million km2 of drylands towards desertification.
