Wildfire: Fire Risk MapEntry ID: cal-adap_fire
Abstract: The data in this climate tool display the projected increase in potential area burned given three different climate models and two different scenarios. Darker oranges and reds suggest up to a 10-fold increase in potential area burned.
Please note that these data are modeled solely on climate projections and do not take landscape and fuel sources into account. New fire risk projections are currently being produced that take more landscape information into account.
