Statistical Analysis of Fire Weather Station Distribution
Abstract:Forest fire danger rating is an important subject to most federal and many state forest protection agencies. It is relatively new and is being rapidly revised and improved. In this development stage one of the first problems of practical application is to determine the number of fire weather observing stations that are necessary for a given precision in measuring the weather factors. The article describes a statistical study of the variation among fire weather observing stations to determine the relative precision obtained from various numbers of stations per ranger district in Oregon and Washington.
