Description

In many parts of the world, both the area and intensity of wildland fires have increased alarmingly. Not only are fires increasing in number, but the nature of these fires is also changing. These fires have been called 'mega-fires,' a term that we use in this conference to imply 'greatness'. The Mega-Fire Reality Conference convened scientists and managers from 20 countries around the world.
