Title: Climatic Controls of Fire in the Western United States: From Atmospheres to Ecosystems

Project Proposal Abstract: The relationship between climate (i.e. monthly to multi-annual variations of atmospheric circulation) and fire is not well understood. A better understanding of this relationship is needed to provide a context for fully informed forecasts of fire weather. Research efforts will focus on decomposing the factors that influence surface-climate conditions prior to and during the fire season in the western United States through examination of climate records and historical fire records.
