Climate

AirFire conducts a variety of studies on climate including climate patterns, climate variability, and climate change.  These include:

  • Analysis of El Nino and La Nina phenomenology and global temperature and precipitation impact patterns
  • Development of climatologies of fire weather indices such as the Haines Index
  • Development of transport potential climatologies to mitigate the impact of Arctic Black Carbon
  • Development of future large fire potential to examine both future fire occurrence and future smoke impacts (the Fire Scenario Builder project)
  • Modeling future wildfire emissions and smoke impacts
