Many thanks to the Bushfire Cooperative Research Centre, the Department of Environment and Conservation, Western Australia (DEC), the Department of Sustainability an Environment, Victoria (DSE) and the CSIRO Sustainable Ecosystems Bushfire Dynamics and Applications team who have supported and financially contributed to the Woody Fuel Consumption Project. Without the help of researchers, technical staff and fire crews, this work would not have been possible. Many thanks also to Phil Cheney and the staff at DEC for their support, contributions and data collected during Project Aquarius and to Jon Marsden-Smedley, the Tasmanian Fire Research Fund and Forestry Tasmania for sharing data from the Warra LTER site. We also thank Mark Finney for his support and assistance with the Burnup model code and Miguel Cruz for his comments on drafts of this paper.
