How was the bushfire attack level (BAL) contour interval calculated?
The BAL contour maps and the contour intervals were specifically calculated for this project and for each vegetation area classified within the site. The complex BAL method 2 calculations take into account the fire danger rating, site slope, effective slope under the vegetation, fuel load and head fire width. All these factors and variables were used to calculate the BAL contour interval and was represented by the BAL Contour maps and the input data shown with the Appendix for validation if required.
How was the bushfire attack level rating calculated? Bushfire Risk Assessment
How was the busfire risk assessment carried out?
The bushfire risk assessment was undertaken on the reserve to define the potential risk. The current BAL ratings, the vegetation modification and other measures are proposed to retain some of the environmental values and reduce the radiant heat impact on nearby buildings.
Does the report recommend seperating trees to reduce the potential for crown fire in the Rocky Bay trail and Cypress Hill areas?
Crown fire spreads from treetop to treetop
