About this talk
What causes fires in sand dunes? How can we explain the role of partially vegetated dunes in these fires? Rosie Huck discusses this in her talk on aeolian processes and her research into sand dunes in particular. Rosie Huck also explains the uses of technology in this field of study, as well as its current limitations in catching the full scale of the fires in these partially vegetated sand dunes. This talk will be interesting for those considering Geography, Biology and Environmental Science.
