Browse our bushfire research
Bushfire assessment apps
We developed apps to critically assess the impact of bushfires on communities.
We have developed a smoke forecasting tool that is being used to help manage fine particle exposure from prescribed burns and bushfires in NSW and Victoria.
Understanding and managing bushfires
Our bushfire research is improving the understanding of fire, and improving technologies and strategies to save lives and limit damage.
Predicting spotfire ignition
Our investigation of the factors that contribute to spotfire ignition will assist fire managers to predict when spotfires might occur.
Life loss database
Our researchers have analysed environmental factors associated with past bushfire fatalities in order to inform bushfire safety policies and programs.
CSIRO Resilience Planning
Resilience planning can reduce the impact of future disasters and, support Australia to bounce back. Building resilience in communities, infrastructure and the natural environment requires an ongoing up-to-date and informed understanding of hazards, vulnerability and exposure.
Our work with drought
We are helping to build environmental resilience in times of drought with improved access to timely information to policy makers and land managers.
Our research is helping to make Australian fields and pastures more drought resilient through improved breeding and crop varieties.
Forecasting and monitoring
CSIRO research is helping to forecast and monitor drought conditions at unprecedented levels of accuracy and resolution.
We are helping Australian farmers make timely and informed decisions using innovative technologies that improve the profitability and productivity of their operations during times of drought.
Social and urban resilience
Our work is helping to build drought resilience in our communities through measures such as improved water use and storage.
