We have developed several meters to help assess the danger of bushfire conditions in different areas.
The McArthur Mk5 Forest Fire Danger Meter is used by rural fire authorities to forecast fire danger in Australian forests.
The Grassland Fire Danger Meter is used by rural fire authorities across Australia to generate fire danger ratings for grassland areas.
The Grassland Fire Spread Meter is used by rural fire authorities across Australia to predict how quickly grassland wildfires will spread.
The CSIRO Fire Spread Meter for Northern Australia is suitable for predicting fire spread in open grassland, woodland and open forest with a grassy understorey.
