A new study combs through the factors that can promote wildfires in California, and concludes that in many cases, warming climate is the decisive driver.
Funding from the Zegar Family Foundation will enable Williams to create a tool to help scientists better understand how wildfires in the Western United States may behave in the future.
Park Williams, a bioclimatologist and Center for Climate and Life Fellow, has found that rising temperatures influence wildfires in the American West.
A combination of urbanization and a warming climate are causing cloud cover to plummet in southern coastal California, leading to increased risk of wildfires.
During a conference at Columbia University, scientists pinpointed areas where advances in fire prediction can be made within the next decade.
