Very large fires (VLFs) have important implications for communities, ecosystems, air quality and fire suppressionexpenditures.VLFsoverthecontiguousUShavebeenstronglylinkedwithmeteorologicalandclimatological variability. Building on prior modelling of VLFs (.5000 ha), an ensemble of 17 global climate models were statistically downscaled over the US for climate experiments covering the historic and mid-21st-century periods to estimate potential changes in VLF occurrence arising from anthropogenic… CONTINUE READING
