B059:
Quantifying drivers of global and regional fire patterns using data and models





Session ID#: 26024

Session Description:
Fire is a critical component of Earth system dynamics and the carbon cycle.  However, since climate and human driving factors vary considerably over time and space, capturing observed patterns using simulations remains a major challenge.  These challenges also result in important uncertainties in predicting future fire activity, understanding past fire activity, and quantifying the role of fire in the Earth system.  Paleorecords offer a diverse source of global/regional fire data on decadal to millennial timescales.  The present day has extensive satellite records and increasingly detailed observations.  Fire model are informed by present day records, but offer a way to test fundamental hypotheses well beyond the present.  This session seeks presentations that aim to quantify the role of humans and climate in driving patterns of fire at multiple spatiotemporal scales.  The goal of our session is to foster interdisciplinary discussions of how data can inform models, and models can inform data.
