Global Paleofire Working Group (GPWG)

The aim of GPD is to provide the scientific community with a global paleofire dataset for research and archiving sedimentary records of fire.

The GPWG will meet the growing needs of interdisciplinary fire scientists and practitioners by developing research projects, in collaboration with stakeholders, that employ diverse data sources, a new open-access database, statistical tools, and state-of-the-art models to address questions about fire-regime variations and their feedbacks on species, ecosystems, and climate.
