Reminder for Unix/Linux Volunteers to ensure they have installed the 32-bit compatibility libraries
Just a reminder to all volunteers running climateprediction.net in Unix/Linux. Unix/Linux machines need to have the 32-bit compatibility libraries manually installed. If these libraries are not installed climateprediction.net workunits will crash when running. See the climateprediction.net forum for more information on this: https://www.cpdn.org/forum_thread.php?id=8008.

climateprediction.net project GDPR Compliance
The climateprediction.net project has now completed it's work on GDPR compliance. This has a number of effects:
- New users will only be able to create an account via the web site.
- Existing users will be asked to consent to the project terms and conditions next time they login to the web site.
- For all users there will be a new preference in the project preferences: 'Do you consent to exporting your data to BOINC statistics aggregation Web sites?'. By default this become 'No'. If you wish to continue to have your statistics exported to the BOINCstats site, you will need to logon to the website https://www.cpdn.org/login_form.php and go to https://www.cpdn.org/prefs_edit.php?subset=project and select the tick box.

Project news: Introducing the AFLAME project (Attributing Amazon Forest fires from Land-use Alteration and Meteorological Extremes)
The AFLAME project is funded through the Newton Fund Climate Science for Services Partnership Brazil via the Met Office and works collaboratively with scientists in the UK and Brazil.

There is an emerging realization that Amazonian wildfires that were formerly driven by deforestation and agricultural expansion, are now growing to unprecedented magnitudes because of meteorological extremes. These escaped agricultural fires are rapidly degrading remaining forests in the Legal Brazilian Amazon (LBA).

Within this project we aim to attribute the change in wildfire risk due to human induced climate change and predict how these wildfire occurrences may change in possible future climates. Other factors besides increased greenhouse gas emissions may affect wildfire incidence, for instance, large-scale natural variability in the climate system from events such as the El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO) as well as how the land is being used and deforested. We will be performing a series of sensitivity studies to determine the relative influence of each of these factors alone on Amazon wildfire outbreaks. To do this we will analyse the results from the distributed computing simulations for the occurrence of weather conducive to wildfire outbreaks and parse this output into a statistical wildfire module.
