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 are collating 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:
The wildfire database is currently updated annually but once the wildfire recording tool has been developed, it will replace the current database ensuring easier access for relevant organisations.
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
