Summary
Australia is a land of extremes, with floods and bushfires a harsh reality of life. These two extreme weather events have significant impact on both the natural landscapes and communities that are exposed to them. In this book, students will investigate occurrences of bushfire and flood in Australia, the results of such extreme weather and ways in which we can prevent or mitigate their occurrence
