Helping Australia better understand, respond to and prepare for extreme events and emergency situations, such as bushfires, floods, cyclones and drought.

Bushfire

Australian bushfires threaten lives and property and cause millions of dollars of damage each year. CSIRO's research is used to respond to bushfires in many ways, from weather warnings to fire-fighter training to predicting fire behaviour.

Tropical cyclones

Tropical cyclones threaten northern Australia every year. CSIRO research seeks to understand causes and likely changes in tropical cyclone intensity and frequency.
