New publication in Nature using FireCCI51

Nature magazine article calls for Australia to establish national monitoring agency

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.
