This is a PhD project being undertaken by Ms Thi Thi Trang Dong. This experimental project aims to identify the health risks of combustion of common Australian vegetation types and conditions that reduce the production of significant components of smoke and toxicity. The study will characterise emissions from burning different types of vegetation and determining the toxicity of resultant toxicity on collected particulate samples. Outputs from this study will provide valuable information for fire managers and public health decision makers on the significance of the composition of smoke and its toxicity emitted under varying combustion conditions.
