National Fire Mapping


This project will examine 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 will help to inform the emissions debate across the whole of the country.

The information from this project will beused formanaging 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.

Projects in this group

This project successfully developed fire severity mapping to use in fire management in the tropical savannas and rangelands of northern Australia. It also applied the data to ecological-risk assessments, including greenhouse gas emissions, tree carbon sequestration, biodiversity and erosion.
