A51Q:
Wildfire in a Changing World: Interactions with Climate and Ecosystems II Posters


Session ID#: 8043

Session Description:
Increasing observational and modeling evidence show that wildfire has been changing around the globe since preindustrial times as a result of climate change and human activities.  For example, extreme large wildfires in regions such Indonesia are major public health concerns. In the western United States in recent decades, wildfire has steadily increased with a drying environment and taken an ever larger toll on the local economy. In this session, we encourage studies that improve the modeling and measurement capabilities and make use of these capabilities to investigate physical and chemical processes that elucidate wildfire interactions with regional and global climate, ecosystems, and air quality.
