Newsweek features a recent study that used FSim to simulate wildfires under future climate change in the PNW. 

"A new study has found that the wildfire risk in the Pacific Northwest is set to double by 2035. A new study published in the journal JGR Biogeosciences used simulations to represent more than 23 million acres of forest across Oregon and Washington. They showed that the area could see double the amount of fires when compared to 30 years ago."
