Fires: A New Study Using Seasonal Predictions

Turco M., Jerez S., Doblas-Reyes F. J., AghKouchak A., LIasat M. C. & Provenzale A. (2018). Skilful forecasting of global fire activity using seasonal climate predictions. Nature Communications, 9, doi: 10.1038/s41467-018-05250-0.

The ECOPOTENTIAL team is proud to announce a new ECOPOTENTIAL project-related publication, with exciting application potential, in the Open Access journal Nature Communications.
Large fires can pose a threat to societies on their frontline. The ability to estimate fire activity in advance, through fire seasonal forecasts, stands to reduce exposure to damaging effects of fire. This publication discusses a means to combine climate-fire models with a precipitation index to produce a climate predictor.
