Research by the Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC is increasing the accuracy of fire severity mapping across northern Australia, leading to better land management outcomes.

Hazard Note 46 compares past and present fire regimes across the north to better understand the effects of various fire management practices.

A new approach is under development incorporating actual fire effect, rather than fire seasonality, to provide land managers with the ability to better monitor their fire management and evaluate its effects, including carbon emissions abatement, across 70 per cent of Australia.
