All bushfires start small - how they progress to large fires that can impact on communities and cause wide-scale destruction is being studied by a team of Bushfire CRC researchers. Until now, the existing knowledge of fire behaviour and tools for prediction assumed steady-state spread of a fire. Understanding the chances of a fire occurring, as well as the likelihood of spot fires, is essential to understanding the behaviour of bushfires under all possible weather conditions.
