Clip from Scope  |  Eleven  |  October 8, 2016

Scientists observe fires on a small scale so they know what to do in a real bushfire. What three things drive bushfire behaviour? What does the hessian on the table represent? What does ‘topography’ mean? What kind of things fuel a fire? Do fires travel faster uphill or downhill? Why do dead leaves burn more quickly than green leaves? How does a fire break work?
