Project: Research

Project Description

This proposal seeks to answer fundamental questions about these interactions, exploring many crucial aspects about the coupling between the fires and the atmosphere, and how they affect the predictability of the fire spread. Answering these questions will underpin imporvements to existing empirical fire spread methods. This work will also transform the Australian fire weather research landscape by implementing a hierarchy of fire modelling systems within the weather prediction version of the Australian Community Climate and Earth System Stimulator (ACCESS)
