The CSIRO Fire Spread Meter for Northern Australia.

The fire spread meter for northern Australia has been designed to predict the rate of spread of fires in open grassland, woodland, and open forest with a grassy understorey.

This meter is not suitable for predicting fire spread in tall, closed forest or tall forest with a substantial shrub and litter component in the understorey.

It is designed to predict fire spread where the grassy fuels are largely undisturbed or grazed only lightly.
