From the text ... 'In this special issue, we present a collection of papers that tackle some of the statistical issues concerned with characterizing wildfires and wildfire risk. These range from the issue of predicting locations and sizes of wildland fires at a landscape level to understanding fire spread at the level of a given fire or a given flame within a fire.Fire risk needs to be addressed at multiple scales of space and time. At the landscape level, managers would like to know the potential of fire in near future periods in order to prioritize specific locations for fire prevention and fuel modification. At a larger time scale, understanding the effects of long term trends and changes in climate and demography on fire risk is important from the standpoint of public policy and research priorities. Global fire data are crucial for the study of fire regime and carbon accounting assessments.' Published 2014. This article is a U.S. Government work and is in the public domain in the USA.
