Figure 4 : Examples of fire weather season length standardized anomalies during significant global fire events.

Figure 4

Red colours indicate areas where fire weather season anomalies are >1 s.d. from the mean, while blue areas indicate shorter-than-normal fire weather season lengths. Areas with little or no burnable vegetation are shown in grey (NB). Red circles denote regions with significant fire activity during that time period. El Niño periods often span multiple calendar years (for example, 1982–1983), so in these cases, the maximum anomaly of either year was mapped above. Maps of all years (1979–2013) are included as Supplementary Figs 1–4.
