Detection of non-linearities in the dependence of burn area on fuel age and climatic variables

Detection of non-linearities in the dependence of burn area on fuel age and climatic variables

International Journal of Wildland Fire 12(1): 1-6

ISSN/ISBN: 1049-8001

DOI: 10.1071/wf02053

Evidence from the Los Angeles County in California, USA, suggests that the relationships between wildfire burn area and fuel age, temperature, precipitation, and fuel moisture are not linear. Instead, the relationships appear to have thresholds. The data seem to support the notion that fire risk is nearly constant provided various conditions are met: that fuel age and temperature exceed a given threshold, and that fuel moisture and precipitation are sufficiently low.
