Science shows how to best burn the bush to reduce bushfire risk

New research into the complexities of prescribed burning across varied landscapes and weather conditions is supporting the critical decisions on how and where to use fire to protect communities. Drawing on cutting-edge science around prescribed burning, the Prescribed Burning Atlas…

Research making a difference

Five years into its tenure, the research of the Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC is being practically applied by its partners right across Australia. This research impact highlights the vision of the CRC: trusted research and knowledge across all hazards,…

Reducing future risk starts now – Integrated planning could hold the key

A better understanding of the economic costs of disasters and their risks, and the risk-reducing benefits of mitigation, can build a compelling case for what can be implemented now to reduce our future natural hazards risk. With the cost of…

Smartphones and sky scans for better fire mapping

Fire managers need to accurately monitor prescribed burns and bushfires to better assess how they affect fuels and how they reduce fire risk. A project at the Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC uses satellite technology to more accurately map bushfires.…

Where to Next with Fire Modelling?

Excessive amounts of heat and moisture generated by large bushfires can affect the surrounding atmosphere, changing wind speed and creating pyroconvective (thunderstorm) clouds. These in turn can profoundly change the way a bushfire behaves. Researchers are starting to incorporate these…
