Academic activities[edit]

A professor at Albert Ludwigs University of Freiburg, Department of Forest and Environmental Sciences. The University hosts the Global Fire Monitoring Center (GFMC), a body which is instrumental in facilitating communication between national and regional forest fire organizations and NGOs. He co-convenes the IGBP-IGAC-BIBEX programme and serves as leader of the UN-FAO/ECE/ILO Team of Specialists on Forest Fire and coordinator of the Wildland Fire Advisory Group and the Global Wildland Fire Network of the UN International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR). He is also member of the ISDR Interagency Task Force for Disaster Reduction. Goldammer has ongoing research concerns on all continents since the mid-1970s and was involved in designing, preparing and partially implementing international and interdisciplinary research campaigns and fire experiments. A series of international conferences organized by the group have produced several monographs on regional and global fire ecology.
