The project aims to develop a rate of spread model that can be operationally deployed and work in conjunction with existing NSW Rural Fire Service and other fire agency systems.
This project further aims to develop:
- a Bayesian probabilistic bushfire rate of spread model for operational use - an operational model that generates predictive distributions of landscape-scale fire spread based on real bushfire observations
- tools and approaches to generate and communicate probabilistic predictions in operational settings
- a comprehensive rate of spread database that is easy to query and share.
