Every year, climate/weather, fuels, and people jointly create thousands of fires, large and small, somewhere in Canada’s vast forests. They have been a necessary part of what shapes our forests for centuries, but our climate is changing rapidly leading to a warmer world with longer fire seasons, more lightning activity, and most importantly, drier fuels. Join Mike Flannigan as he explores what fires in the 21st century will look like. What will be the new challenges for fire management? And how can enhanced fire danger rating systems that accurately predict the spatial and temporal variability in fire danger help us adapt to a warmer world?
