Paper Title:
Spatial Patterns of Lightning-Ignited Forest Fires in Daxing’an Mountains, Heilongjiang Province, China, 1973-1997
  Abstract

The spatial pattern of forest fire locations is of interest for fire occurrence prediction. A spatial statistical analysis of lightning-caused fires in the province of Heilongjiang, China, between 1973 and 1997, was carried out to investigate the spatial pattern of fires, the way they depart from randomness, and the scales at which spatial correlation occurs. Fire locations were found to be spatially clustered. The results also showed that there are some “hot-point” areas in DaXing’an Ling.
