This fire note is one of eight that aims to summarise the findings of Hub research in a way that is useful to fire managers.
Bushfires and hazard reduction burns (HRBs) produce pollution. The NSW
Bushfire Risk Management Research Hub investigated the intensity and
spread of particulates from active and historic bushfires and HRBs. The Hub
considered smoke plumes and ground-level pollution and is developing
models to help fire managers better plan HRBs.
