The likelihood of extreme events such as forest fires is expected to increase due to climate change. However, the mechanisms promoting the conditions leading to fires, their risk, and likely intensity are not well studied. This thesis identifies the relationship between soil moisture, fire danger, extreme temperature and fire intensity in Australia.
