Jasmine Innocent's research focuses on grassland fire behaviour through sloped terrains and non-homogeneous fuel beds. The motivation for this research is to provide insight into fire behaviour which may then be used to improve operational models, improve prediction of real wild fires, and subsequently mitigate the risks of wildfire impact. Practitioners currently use a ‘rule-of-thumb’ stating that the Rate-of-Spread (RoS) of fire doubles for every ten degrees of upslope, however, there appears to be little empirical evidence for this other than the knowledge of experienced practitioners.
