Fire occurrence exhibits a negative correlation with rainfall, and is more severe overall during the El-Nino periods. However, not all regions are equally affected by El-Nino. In Southern Sumatra and Southern Borneo the correlation with El-Nino is high. However, fires in some regions such as Riau and Jambi in the central part of Sumatra do not appear to be influenced by El-Nino. These regions are also experiencing rapid conversion of forest, especially those in peat areas, to large scale plantations. © 2013 IEEE.||Source Title:||International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS)||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/116049||ISBN:||9781479911141||DOI:||10.1109/IGARSS.2013.6723691|
