We’re creating a database to record wildfires on the Peak District and South Pennine moors.
As part of our MoorLIFE 2020 research and monitoring programme we collated information from relevant organisations to form a database for moorland wildfires across the South Pennine Moors Special Area of Conservation since 2007.
This work is vitally important as it:
This is the final wildfire report as part of MoorLIFE 2020. We have developed a wildfire log where people and organisations can record and view information about wildfires. For more information about the wildfire log and to apply for an account, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
We also conducted research into the perceived change in risk and severity of wildfire, prior to and after conservation work has been completed.
A guide to the method used in creation of the wildfire database and an analysis of trends associated with key variables.
As part of the MoorLIFE 2020 project, we have undertaken a carbon audit to measure the amount of greenhouse gas the project prevents being lost, as well as how much it emits
