The Bushfire CRC sent a delegation of researchers and end-user partners to present at the 3rd Human Dimensions of Wildland Fire conference in Seattle, Washington in April 2012.

Important research has been conducted over the past few years in respect to firefighter cooling and hydration, designed to ensure the firefighters' core temperatures are maintained at a safe level.

This field trip was an opportunity for Bushfire CRC end-users and researchers to interact and discuss how current field-based research activities at University of Melbourne and University of Sydney deliver useful information on fire impacts on forest hydrology and erosion.
