Prescribed burning

Fire Weather

 The initial phase of this project which commenced in June 2010, was a case study on the Kangaroo Island 2007 bushfires.  The completed study focuses on three separate days of significant fire activity during the fire campaign.  It describes how the changes in broad scale meteorology were modified by the islands environment, hence impacting the observed fire behaviour.  The second phase will be to run the Weather Research and Forecasting model.

Integrated assessment of Prescribed burning

Fire managers face a multitude of competing priorities when considering how to reduce losses from future fires. With limited funds, an increasing population to protect from bushfire, and more people living in bushfire-prone areas, fire managers face a significant resource-allocation challenge. Knowing which risk-mitigation strategies provide the best value for money is therefore of great benefit.
