EL NIÑO AND FOREST FIRES: A GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE
El Niño can lead to drought conditions, which increase the risk of forest fires.
Forest fires can have a significant impact on the environment, including air and water quality.
The smoke from forest fires can also have negative effects on human health.
El Niño can affect forest fires on a global scale, with increased fire activity in some regions and decreased activity in others.
Climate change is expected to increase the frequency and severity of El Niño events, which could lead to more frequent and intense forest fires.
Effective forest management strategies, such as controlled burns and fire suppression, can help mitigate the impact of forest fires.
