Description: Access the Wildfire: Fire Risk Map tool.

Description: Climate data provided by the Climate Applications Lab

Data Set Contributed: Fire Risk Data

These data model the ratio of additional fire risk for an area as compared to the expected burned area for each grid cell. The ratio of additional risk was calculated for 30 year averaged periods ending 2020, 2050, and 2085, for four models (CCSM3, GFDL, PCM1, CNRM) and two scenarios (A2, B1). More detailed information about these data can be found in: Westerling, A. L., Bryant, B. P., 2008. Climate Change and Wildfire in California. Climatic Change (2008) 87 (Suppl 1): s231-s249.
