The degree and manner in which different fires affect climate is a complete unknown, but is expected to vary substantially and may in fact represent a currently untapped climate mitigation service. In this webinar, Rogers will provide background on these issues, and describe his team's plans to quantify fire climate forcings across Alaska and Canada as part of NASA's Arctic Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE). Our long-term goal is to work with fire managers to develop operational tools that can be integrated into fire fighting priority mapping and decision making. We hope to elicit feedback at the outset of the project in order to facilitate effective bilateral communication.
