    Description

    The statistical analysis of wildland fire activity is integral to wildland fire planning, operations, and research across the globe. Historical fire records are inputs to fire danger rating applications, fire-potential forecast models, geospatial fire modeling systems, and other tools for risk assessment, planning, budgeting, and decision support at multiple scales (Manzello et al. 2018). Spatiotemporal analyses of wildfire activity are used to characterize patterns and trends in relation to potential drivers such as population, land use, climate, and fire-control policies and to understand the socio-ecological impacts of fire (Doerr and Santín 2016; Andela et al. 2017; Manzello et al. 2018; Riley et al. 2019).
