We’re happy to be supporting the University of Southern Cross’ NOBURN Citizen Science project.
NOBURN is the first of its kind citizen science project involving Australian communities in data collection and predictive modelling of bushfires, garnering interest in the science behind bushfires and creating awareness of the fire-susceptibility of our forests.
To find out more about the project and how you can participate — check out Dr. Sam’s video… we hope join us in supporting the project.
Many have suspected our dear Earth is hotter than ever — the NOAA has now presented data that statistically proves it. Last month was the hottest in recorded history and it seems this is a shadow of things to come… check out their summary with links to more details here.
There is a great story by Paul Fox-Hughes of the Australian Bureau of Meteorology on ABC News with engaging videos and insights… There is a lot that we have to do as a community to reduce the risk fire poses to the things that are important to us — but understanding how and why bushfires occur and spread is an important starting point.
