Abstract

The AA. conducted an examination of the spatial and temporal relationships and correlations between snow cover and wildfire from 1986 through 1996 in the 11 western states of the United States. Snow-cover and wildfire data were aggregated and normalized for each state, as well as for the entire western region. No strong correlation was found for the entire western United States, nor did state aggregations show signs of consistent yearly correlation between measures of snow cover and wildfire. Nevertheless, a few states experienced above-average acreage burned totals following winters with above-average snow cover
