13,000 years of fire history derived from soil charcoal in a British Columbia coastal temperate rain forest

Abstract Little is known about the fire history of high-u2010latitude coastal temperate rainforests in the Pacific Northwest of North America's north. A rise in fire frequency in the late Holocene ranged from 12,670 to 100 yr BP, and 70% of the fires tested were within the last 1000 years, which is consistent with the widely held belief that anthropogenic fires were common across the PNW. In a coastal temperate rain forest setting, we review TSF results and discuss the challenges in assigning true fire dates from charcoal fragments with significant inbuilt ages. To recap general trends in fire activity in the Holocene zone, we've found that a broad approach using soil charcoal and fire scar analysis is required.
