  Understanding and improving wind risk assessment for farm forests in Ireland
  Prof N Metje, Prof Mark Sterling
Application Deadline: 31 October 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Strong winds can result in tree uprooting (windthrow, the most common one) and/or breakage (windsnap) causing considerable damage and leading to major financial losses for forest owners.
  Identification of tree species based on UAV captured images
  Dr H Wei, Prof J Ferryman, Dr G DiFatta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Computer Computer vision technology has been found to be an important application in remotely sensed data understanding. This research exploits high‐resolution images captured by UAV payload cameras to identify tree species.
