Mika Peace is a Bushfire CRC PhD scholar who looked at atmospheric structures and bushfires. Mika's research was based on a number of case studies from across Australia.
The initial phase of this project which commenced in June 2010, was a case study on the Kangaroo Island 2007 bushfires. The completed study focuses on three separate days of significant fire activity during the fire campaign. It describes how the changes in broad scale meteorology were modified by the islands environment, hence impacting the observed fire behaviour. The second phase will be to run the Weather Research and Forecasting model.
