Savanna fire management and bushfire and natural hazard scenario planning for north Australia
Australia’s tropical savannas are extremely fire-prone – approximately 20% of the savanna region (which covers a quarter of Australia) is currently burnt each year.
This project is:
- Describing environmental risks and providing mapping tools for remote community planning purposes.
- Quantifying the risks posed by flammable exotic grasses (e,g, gamba and mission grasses
- Exploring fire management challenges in the Gulf of Carpentaria region near the Northern Territory and Queensland border.
