Thesis title

To be defined

Research description

Climate change will cause a variety of impacts on environmental systems. Understanding and predicting some of these impacts will be the focus of my project as I will be predicting changes in vegetation as a response to climate change in a region of the Torngat Mountains, Labrador. Satellite imagery, climate data, and in-situ data concerning vegetation characteristics will be used to develop a model to predict any changes that might occur in vegetation patterns in the alpine region of the Torngat Mountains.
