Composite Anomalies of Net Radiation and Soil Moisture

maps of net radiation and soil moisture across North America

Detailed Description

Figure 2. March through September composite anomalies for net radiation (B) and soil moisture (H) for high fire years (first row) and low fire years (bottom row) in the Northern Rockies 15-km domain. The colored anomaly maps are overlaid with the area burned by lightning and human and unknown ignition sources. The composite anomalies are computed by subtracting the 1986 2013 average from the average of the 9 highest (lowest) fire years. (From Figure 5 in Hostetler et al., 2018)
