Fire Weather Index
Achieve a greener and safer future, avoid forest damage and reduce air pollution with this accurate service that is designed to help users estimate the current and forecast danger of fire.
Forests provide one of the most important carbon sinks to mitigate climate change. With increasing global temperatures, forests and other wooded areas are becoming more susceptible to wildfires. These fires release carbon into the atmosphere, exacerbating the effects of climate change, damaging forest ecosystems, and creating dangerous levels of air pollution. The worst forest fires this century were witnessed is 2021, causing 9.3 million hectares of tree cover loss globally.
Having combined our technical expertise with our vision for a greener future, we are thrilled to announce our new Fire Weather Index product - designed to help users to estimate current and forecast fire danger.
The API allows getting the numerical values of the fire weather index which is accounting the effects of fuel moisture and weather conditions on fire behaviour.
