Elevated climate-driven fire risk for the southern Amazon in 2020:

As of May, 2020, sea surface temperatures in the tropical Pacific Ocean and North Atlantic Ocean were significantly warmer than the mean values during 2001-2015. Using the historic relationship between sea surface temperatures and regional fire activity, we forecast moderate to high fire season severity for the Southern Amazon in 2020. Climate-driven fire risk is highest for the Brazilian states of Acre, Mato Grosso, Rondônia, and Pará, and the departments of Pando, El Beni, and Santa Cruz in Bolivia.
