This comment in Nature magazine, published on August 2020, uses the FireCCI51 product to illustrate the anomalous fire season of 2019/2020 in Australia, especially in the Eucalyptus Forests ecosystems.

The comment advocates for the creation of a national fire monitoring agency, as the last fire season has shown that the current state- and territory-based monitoring of wildfire causes, extent and effects can be insufficient when dealing with wildfires that cross state borders, as has been the case during last summer.
