This project is:
• Describing environmental risks and providing mapping tools for remote community planning purposes.
• Quantifying the risks posed by flammable exotic grasses (e.g. gamba and mission grasses)
• Exploring fire management challenges in the Gulf of Carpentaria region near the Northern Territory and Queensland border.
This project builds upon substantial work previously undertaken within the facility of the Bushfire CRC “North Australia fire mapping” project.
This PhD research aims to develop and assess methods, using stereo satelitte imagery and laser scanning data, to extract 3D tree biophysical structural parameters for the purposes of accurately estimating biomass/carbon stocks in NT mesic savannas.
The project applies ecological-economic methods to help build the resilience and sustainability of remote Indigenous communities across northern Australia.
