In its work, the study authors tracked the pattern of occurrence and spread of wild fires on a global scale, and identified the climatic parameters that affect the risk of wild fires. This allowed them to compare the data with the prediction of fire related global climate change in the future. It turned out that in the next three decades, the most likely place of occurrence of wild fires are the Tibetan Plateau and the western United States, where now such fires occur rarely.
