Andrew Edwards of Charles Darwin University is conducting Bushfire CRC research into fire severity in the tropical savanna woodlands of northern Australia.
Wildfire spread prediction in the coming Kimberley fire season
Staff ride for a Narawntau planned burn, Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service. Filmed with the support of the Bushfire CRC.
A staff ride is an experiential learning activity that enables systemic, cultural or psychological issues to become visible. This page contains information and resources to assist agencies run their own staff ride.
Learning resources - how to design a staff ride
Designing the staff ride - a vehicle for learning from bushfire and prescribed burning operations in Australia, and a guide to building organisational capacity for high reliability.
The PhD work of Valerie Densmore explored how woody legumes, typified by wattles, can play a central role in restoring ecosystems following bushfires. She showed that when their seeds are exposed to heat they germinate quickly, helping to stabilise soil and return nitrogen to the system. The knowledge gained from her research is important to predicting ecosystem resilience and fuel recovery following fire.
Andrew Stark is a Bushfire CRC Lead End User and has used Phil Zylstra's research on fire and fuel models. He was interviewed at the Bushfire CRC 2010 annual conference.
Rick McRae led the Managing the Risk component of the Bushfire CRC Highfire project. He was interviewed at the 2010 Bushfire CRC annual conference in Darwin.
Phil Zylstra was interviewed on his research project on "Fire intensity and a total fuel model" at the 2010 Bushfire CRC annual conference in Darwin.
