Australian grassland fire danger using inputs from the GRAZPLAN grassland simulation model

Gill, A Malcom; King, Karen; Moore, Andrew D

Description

Assessing and broadcasting the Fire Danger Rating each day of the fire season is an important activity in fire-prone nations. For grasslands in Australia, grass curing and biomass are biological variables that are not usually archived yet as inputs, along with weather data, to the calculation of Grassland Fire Danger Index (GFDI) and potential fire intensity. To assess past changes in the index, the biological inputs for GFDI for Canberra in south-eastern Australia were obtained using a pasture...[Show more]
