conditions for the development of major fire events, such as the great Roraima forest fire in February–March 1998 ( Cochrane and Schulze 1998 ; Elvidge et al. 2001 ; Phulpin et al. 2002 ). The Amazon region experiences approximately 70% of the total annual number of fires detected through satellite imagery in Brazil (see information online at http://www.cptec.inpe.br/queimadas , or http://www.dpi.inpe.br/proarco/bdqueimadas ). Increasing human forcing contributes additional pressure to the

1. Introduction During the past several years, reanalysis products have provided many large-scale meteorological fields that are not only useful for validating coarse-scale climate models, but can also be used as forcing for various regional application models (e.g., hydrologic models). These reanalysis products have been subject to much evaluation, and, unfortunately, precipitation and associated hydrologic products remain problematic. Reanalysis precipitation is classified as a C variable
