Mick Meyer is an atmospheric scientist with CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research. He currently works with the Centre for Australian Weather and Climate Research, a joint venture between CSIRO and the Bureau of meteorology. Mick has worked extensively on quantifying and accounting the exchanges of trace gases between the biosphere and the atmosphere, particularly the development of inventory methodologies. Currently Mick's focus is on emissions of greenhouse gases, reactive gases and particulates and toxics from biomass combustion. Mick developed the current methodology for national accounting of greenhouse gases from savanna and forest fires and is an author of the CFI methodology for Savanna fire emissions. He is currently studying emission factors from savanna and temperate forest fuels, and leads projects within the Bushfire CRC on mapping of fire severity, and assessing regional smoke impacts from fires in southern Australia.
