Welcome to the International Paleofire Network (IPN)

IPN aims to advance our understanding of the controls and impacts of fire in the Earth system on a wide range of spatial and temporal scales.

IPN looks to meet the growing needs of interdisciplinary fire scientists and practitioners by developing research projects, in collaboration with stakeholders, that employ diverse data sources, an open-access database (GPD), statistical tools, and state-of-the-art models to address questions about fire-regime variations and their feedbacks on species, ecosystems, and climate.

The Global Paleofire Database (GPD) is to provide the scientific community with a global paleofire dataset for research, documentation and archiving.
