Abstract

Objectives: To determine the impact of bushfires on children's physical activity. Design: Natural experiment comparing device-measured physical activity and air quality index data for schools exposed and not exposed to the Australian bushfires. Methods: Participants were drawn from 22 schools...

Abstract

The 2019-2020 summer wildfire event on the east coast of Australia was a series of major wildfires occurring from November 2019 to end of January 2020 across the states of Queensland, New South Wales (NSW), Victoria and South Australia. The wildfires were unprecedent in scope and the extensive...

Abstract

Preventing the loss of human lives and the destruction of houses is a focus of land management in fire prone environments. An understanding of the location and nature of risks to assets is important to plan mitigation activities. House destruction during wildfires has been found to be a function of ...

Abstract

Droughts are predicted to increase in severity in many regions due to climate change and there is strong evidence that such events can lead to increased insect attack and consequent widespread tree mortality in temperate forests. Much less is known about the impact of increased drought on tropical...

Abstract

Recent logging and wildfire have been linked to increased fire severity in forests around the world. The mechanisms driving this association are uncertain but increased vertical fuel connectivity in recently disturbed forests is often suggested as a possible cause. These suggestions often assume...

Abstract

Wildfires, or bushfires, are one of the most destructive natural disasters in Australia, which can cause many deaths of stock, native animals, sometimes humans, and huge impacts on infrastructure. Reconstructing past wildfires and exploring the links between wildfires and climate are essential for...

Abstract

Australia often experiences natural disasters and extreme weather conditions such as: flooding, sandstorms, heatwaves, and bushfires (also known as wildfires or forest fires). The proportion of the Australian population aged 65 years and over is increasing, alongside the severity and frequency of...

Abstract

Background: Wildland fire (wildfire; bushfire) pollution contributes to poor air quality, a risk factor for premature death. The frequency and intensity of wildfires are expected to increase; improved tools for estimating exposure to fire smoke are vital. New-generation satellite-based sensors...

Abstract

Disturbance plays an important role in determining whether forests are carbon sinks or sources. Logging and wildfire are common widespread disturbances known to significantly reduce carbon stocks in carbon rich forests, such as, the tall forests of south-eastern Australia. Most tall forests in...

Abstract

Changes in the hydrologic cycle have far reaching impacts on agricultural productivity, water resources availability, riverine ecosystems, and our ability to manage environmental assets, bushfire risk, and flood hazard. For example, declining rainfall in the southeast of Australia has led to a...
