From the text...'This is the third report of a study of forest fires and fire danger rating in Georgia. Previous reports were for calendar years 1959 and 1960. The purpose of the report is to present information on the relation of number of fires and acres burned to fire danger measurements, to indicate any possible trends from an analysis of three years of records, and to summarize basic fire and fire danger data that can be used for other studies of fire meteorology and fire control planning. Fire danger data were obtained from a network of 39 selected and carefully maintained 8-100-0 type key fire danger stations representing all 10 Georgia Forestry Commission Districts (figs. 1 and 2). Data from certain stations were used in adjoining districts to assure adequate coverage. The Georgia Forestry Commission operates 35 stations, the U.S. Forest Service 3 stations, and St. Regis Paper Company 1 station in the key network (fig. 1). Fire occurrence data from state-protected forest lands only are included.' By permission of The Georgia Forestry Commission.
