A Difference in biomass consumed by wildfire between the fire suppression and no fire suppression model scenarios. BD Differences in fuel loads averaged across all forested grid cells in the study area for each year (based on which grid cells were modeled as tree-dominated in 2010). All differences are calculated as the mean fire-suppressed value minus the mean value with no fire suppression. Vertical orange lines show the beginning years of large droughts which appear to impact the model results. Fuel loads shown are dead wood carbon (B), litter carbon (C), and live aboveground carbon (D)
