Year of highest three-month period of fire

The map shows the year in which the highest moving average three month period of fire occurred (2002–2019) based on MODIS Fire_cci Burnt Area product (Chuvieco et al. 2018). Cooler colours (blues and greens) indicate that the highest three month period of fire occurred further in the past. Hotter colours (oranges and reds) indicate that the highest three month period of fire occurred more recently. Regions of interest with recent fire activity are highlighted (clockwise from top left): western USA/ Canada, the Middle East, India, Siberia, eastern Australia, and Amazonia.
