Dr. Michele Barbato, faculty director of CITRIS Climate and co-director of the UC Davis Climate Adaptation Research Center, recently co-published a paper titled “Using Satellite-Derived Fire Arrival Times for Coupled Wildfire-Air Quality Simulations at Regional Scales of the 2020 California Wildfire Season.” Using satellite observations of wildfire spreads, the study developed an accurate simulation of multiple fires during the 2020 California wildfire season. The research demonstrated the potential to develop more accurate predictive tools for future wildfire events.
