• Relating Fire Occurrence to Weather Conditions on the Great Basin Rangelands

      Hubbard, K. G. (Society for Range Management, 1980-09-01)
      Results are presented to demonstrate the association between weather conditions and fire danger on the rangelands of the Great Basin. It was found that precipitation frequency and duration are physically related to fire occurrence in a complex manner. A climatic relationship also exists between monthly temperature and the corresponding total number of fires for a specific area.
