More about CSIRO
Avaliable language options:
CSIRO's research is used to respond to bushfires in many ways, from weather warnings to fire-fighter training to predicting fire behaviour.
Our bushfire research is improving the understanding of fire, and improving technologies and strategies to save lives and limit damage.
CSIRO has a strong history in observing and recording the way in which bushfires impact on people and their environment.
Primary topic: Understanding and managing bushfires
We evaluated various bushfire spread models to develop a practical guide for predicting the rate of fire spread in different Australian vegetation types under different conditions.
The Pyrotron is used to study the combustion and spread of fires in bushfire fuel under controlled conditions. It aims to improve fire safety and fire-fighting for Australian communities.
Primary topic: Environmental services
We have developed several meters to help assess the danger of bushfire conditions in different areas.
