This project has examined some of the key environmental aspects of fire management in relation to the management of carbon and emissions in the northern parts of Australia - in particularly getting a better understanding of fire severity, and particulate and aerosol emissions. This is helping to inform the emissions debate across the whole of the country.
The information from this project is used for managing fire and land; assessing regional impacts (such as air quality), corresponding health impacts, and regional and global climate impacts; and assessing risk for long-term regional planning and management.
