Bushfire close? Breathe easy with the AirRater app
The AirRater citizen science app is helping to reduce the impact of bushfire smoke on communities – powered by CSIRO’s air quality forecasting tool, AQFx.
Meet our scientist: Dr Miguel Cruz
The severity of the Black Summer bushfires in Australia helped scientist Dr Miguel Cruz to see first-hand how his bushfire behaviour models could be improved. This month he released the Vesta Mark 2 model.
Australia’s Black Summer of fire was not normal – and we can prove it

Staying connected when it counts to improve disaster resilience
We've teamed up with Optus to identify how to improve the resilience of our telecommunications infrastructure during natural disasters.
Meet our researcher: Justin Leonard
Justin Leonard’s job is to burn down houses so we can learn how best to protect them from bushfires.
How bushfires and rain turned our waterways into ‘cake mix’, and what we can do about it

How can we support Indigenous-led fire management?
We’re working with Indigenous fire experts to design landscape burning partnerships, projects and activities.
