Extended Data Fig. 10: Relations of large-scale climate patterns to the occurrence of wildfires and to chlorophyll a distribution.

From: Widespread phytoplankton blooms triggered by 2019–2020 Australian wildfires

Extended Data Fig. 10

ac, Time-series of climate indices Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) (a), Southern Annular Mode (SAM) (b) and Oceanic Niño Index (c). Historical Australian mega-wildfire periods shaded in orange (>1 million hectares of land burned). d, [Chla] anomaly predicted by IOD index during the 2019–2020 Australian wildfires. e, [Chla] anomaly predicted by SAM index during the 2019–2020 Australian wildfires. The [Chla] anomaly potentially induced by the climate patterns are substantially smaller than the observed [Chla] anomaly (Fig. 1d).
