Abstract

With a focus on the science of natural hazards the popular Research Forum is an annual lead-in to the joint CRC and AFAC conference.

The collected proceedings of the 2014 Research Forum, held as part of the 2014 Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC and AFAC conference in Wellington, New Zealand, are now available online.

The sold-out Forum included 31 presentations from various Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC researchers, as well as researchers from other organisations. The presentations covered both emerging and advanced projects across the full range of fire and natural hazards research.

Each presenter had the option of submitting their paper for external review, with 22 papers collated here in the formal proceedings. The papers are arranged in the order they were presented during the Forum.

Topics covered include: managing severe weather, community understanding, building and engineering, economics, forecasting, search and rescue, fire-plume dynamics, emergency management performance, disaster support systems and assessment tools, scenario planning, volunteering, child-centred risk reduction, managing animals in disasters and historical lessons from emergencies.
