Southern California Wildfires Exhibit Split Personalities

University of California, Irvine

Wildfires have ravaged both populated and unpopulated regions of Southern California at an increasing rate over the past few decades, and scientists from three University of California campuses and partner institutions are predicting that by midcentury, as a consequence of climate change causing hotter and drier summers, a lot more will go up in flames.

UCI, NASA Researchers Find Link Between Amazon Fire Risk, Devastating Hurricanes

University of California, Irvine

Researchers from the University of California, Irvine and NASA have uncovered a remarkably strong link between high wildfire risk in the Amazon basin and the devastating hurricanes that ravage North Atlantic shorelines. The climate scientists’ findings appear in the journal Geophysical Research Letters near the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina’s calamitous August 2005 landfall at New Orleans.

Trial by Fire: Wildfire Fighting Offers Lessons in Performing Well in Unpredictable Situations

Johns Hopkins University Carey Business School

As continued drought and unusually high temperatures raise alarm over the severity of this year’s wildfire season in western states, a Johns Hopkins University researcher’s study of wildland firefighting has uncovered lessons in performing under uncertainty that should benefit workers in a variety of contexts.

Changing Climate Lengthens Forest Fire Season

South Dakota State University

Over a 35-year period, the length of forest fire seasons worldwide increased by 18.7 percent due to more rain-free days and hotter temperatures, according to South Dakota State University professor Mark Cochrane, a senior scientist at the Geospatial Sciences Center of Excellence. The wildfire expert is part of a team of researchers led by W. Matt Jolly of the U.S. Forest Service Fire Science Laboratory that examined weather data from 1979 through 2013 to determine how a changing climate impacts forest ecosystems.

Scientists Study How, Why Butterflies Survive Fires

University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences

Deciding how often and when to use prescribed fire can be tricky, especially when managing for rare butterflies, University of Florida scientists say. That realization stems from a UF Institute of Food and Agricultural study in which researchers experimented with pupae -- insects in their immature form between larvae and adults -- of butterflies known to frequent fire-prone habitats of Florida.

Forest Managers Hindered in Efforts to Use Prescribed Burns to Control Costly Wildfires

University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences

Land managers use prescribed burns to help prevent wildfires and protect the ecosystem. They prefer to burn every few years, but costs, liability and proximity to development prevent them from performing the prescriptive burns.
