Research Driving Change in Adelaide
All CRC research findings will be on show at our special event, Research Driving Change, in Adelaide on 4-5 July. Agenda preview out now.
Hazard Note 29 explains research that is integrating remote sensing data on soil moisture and flood extent with rainfall and runoff models, which will lead to more accurate flood predictions.
Hazard Note 28 covers PhD research findings into the role of volunteered geographic information in fostering community engagement in bushfire preparation, providing a clearer path for emergency service agencies to best-utilise this technology for and with communities.
The new-look Disaster Resilience Knowledge Hub from the Australian Institute for Disaster Resilience will feature a selection of key Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC research.
The next round of funding is available for the CRC’s Tactical Research Fund, established to support short-duration research projects to meet the near term needs of Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC partners.
Heavy rain in areas burnt by bushfire can mobilise massive volumes of sediments and nutrients into rivers and water reservoirs, threatening the quality and supply of water to Australia’s capital and regional cities and damaging freshwater ecosystems.
Science and the latest learnings from across emergency management will feature at AFAC17 powered by INTERSCHUTZ, the annual Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC and AFAC conference.
Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC PhD student Maryam Nasim has been awarded the Austroads Young Engineer Best Paper Award at the Austroards Bridge Conference 2017.
This is the April 2017 newsletter from the Scientific diversity, scientific uncertainty and risk mitigation policy and planning project (RMPP), with updates for project end-users.
I was in the US last month for the National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy workshop in Nevada talking up the CRC program and trying to find how we can better get our science out.
