Analyzing the transmission of wildfire exposure on a fire-prone landscape in Oregon, USA

Publications Posted on: January 26, 2015
We develop the idea of risk transmission from large wildfires and apply network analyses to understand its importance on a 0.75 million ha US national forest. Wildfires in the western US frequently burn over long distances (e.g., 20–50 km) through highly fragmented landscapes with respect to ownership, fuels, management intensity, population density, and ecological conditions.
