Implications of changing climate and atmospheric CO 2 for grassland fire in south-east Australia: insights using the GRAZPLAN grassland simulation model
Climate and fuel characteristics influence fire regimes, and both need to be realistically considered in bushfire projections. Previous south-eastern Australian studies have assumed maximum grassland fuel curing (100%) and average fuel load (4.5tha-1). This study is the first to include daily fuel curing and load dynamics, derived from the agricultural pasture growth model GRAZPLAN, in projections of Grassland Fire Danger Index (GFDI) and potential fire-line intensity for future climateCO2...[Show more]
