Abstract

Ozone and particle pollution are of concern for the Sydney basin, in particular during warm months (November to March) when pollution levels can exceed national standards. Previous studies on the relationship between synoptic circulation and air quality focused on high pollution days or aggregated...

Abstract

The McArthur Forest Fire Danger Index used in Australia for operational fire warnings has a component representing fuel availability called the Drought Factor (DF). The DF is partly based on soil moisture deficit, calculated as either the Keetch-Byram Drought Index (KBDI) or Mount's Soil Dryness...

Abstract

The small rainforest fragments found in savanna landscapes are powerful, yet often overlooked, model systems to understand the controls of these contrasting ecosystems. We analyzed the relative effect of climatic variables on rainforest density at a subcontinental level, and employed...

Abstract

Linear clearings associated with roads passing through vegetation communities are known to inhibit movements of many animal species. This can reduce breeding, dispersal and foraging opportunities and lead to population fragmentation, putting further pressure on populations that are small or...

Abstract

Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to examine the level of physical preparation for bushfire among Victorian residents in established high risk bushfire locations, and to assess whether these levels of preparation changed over time. Design/methodology/approach: Data were analysed from a...

Abstract

Employing data from the Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia survey and the McArthur Forest Fire Danger Index, this study tests: (1) the association between forest fire danger and an individual's life satisfaction; (2) the association between forest fire danger and an individual's...

Abstract

Most of the life and property losses due to bushfires in south-eastern Australia occur under extreme fire weather conditions - strong winds, high temperatures, low relative humidity (RH) and extended drought. However, what constitutes extreme, and the values of the weather ingredients and their...

Abstract

This study shows how high-resolution (∼15 cm) simultaneous colour and infra-red digital aerial photography can be used to map both fire severity and, particularly, fire extent, in forest in south-eastern Australia. The results show that this methodology is capable of detecting and mapping burnt and ...

Abstract

A detailed examination of the brown coal facies preserved in the Latrobe Valley Morwell 1B seam indicates that the type of peat-forming environment and the associated hydrological regime are the main factors influencing the development of lithotypes in brown coal deposits. New palynological data...

Abstract

The research investigated understandings of risk and resilience in emergency management (EM) policy and practice. The core findings illustrate how a complex of institutionalised socio-cultural expectations and standardised processes - that is, evidence-based response models to deal with and...
