Résumé

To evaluate the influence of long‐distance transport of charcoal particles on the detection of local wildfires from lake sediment sequences, we tracked three consecutive years of charcoal deposition into traps set within seven boreal lakes in northeastern Canada. Peaks in macroscopic charcoal accumulation (>150 µm) were linked to both local (inside the watershed) and regional wildfires. However, regional fires were characterized by higher proportions of small particles (<0.1 mm2) in charcoal assemblages. We conclude that the analysis of particle size distribution is useful to discriminate “true” local fires from regional wildfires.
