Changes in fire and carbon dynamics for projected future climates in the south eastern Australian high country

King, Karen; De Ligt, Robert; Cary, Geoffrey


There is mounting evidence that warmer and drier climates will result in an increase in fire activity. Lower fuel moistures result in an increase in fuel availability, and hence a greater probability of fire ignition success, with fires potentially burning for extended periods and at higher intensities. At present, the implications of these anticipated changes in fire regimes for carbon dynamics in Australian ecosystems are unclear. This study attempts to address this by combining the carbon...[Show more]
