August 2017 Climate Currents


Fire Season is Here!

In the August 2017 Climate Currents for the CIRCulator, John Abatzoglou excites 'Fire Season is Here' and explains the climate conditions that led the Pacific Northwest(PNW) to be engulfed in fire in August 2017. He shows a map of the Energy Release Component  from the NW Climate Toolbox's 'Climate Mapper' tool to explain the current dryness of the vegetation over the PNW.
