Spatial patterns of fire occurrence in the central Appalachian Mountains and implications for wildland fire management

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The AA. investigate spatial variations in the incidence of anthropogenic and natural (lightning-ignited) fire in the central Appalachian Mountains of Virginia and West Virginia using a record of wildland fires that occurred on federal lands between 1970 and 2003. A consideration of spatial variability in wildland fire is important for allocating fire-suppression resources and for informing resource managers who use naturally ignited wildland fires or prescribed fires in ecological restoration efforts and fuel reduction treatments. The AA. compare ignition density, maximum fire size, and fire cycle in the 3 physiographic provinces of this region
