Environmental impacts of prescribed and wildfire - emissions management

(cover image)

Fire Note 96: This Fire Note examines the effect of prescribed burning on forest carbon and greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere. Results from this project will supply critical information to predict the emission of greenhouse gases from biomass burning, and to identify opportunities for greenhouse gas abatement through different forest management practices.

Dr Liubov Volkova presented on this project at the 2012 Bushfire CRC and Australasian Fire and Emergency Service Authorities Council (AFAC) annual conference in Perth. Presentations from the Research Forum can be found on the Research Forum page. All other presentations from the conference can be found on AFAC's Knowledge Web.
