RH: Burning index in Los Angeles A Note on Non-parametric and Semi-parametric Modeling of Wildfire Hazard in Los Angeles County, California.

By Frederic Paik Schoenberg, Jamie Pompa and Chien-hsun Chang


Abstract: This paper explores the use of, and problems that arise in, kernel smooth-ing and parametric estimation of the relationships between wildfire incidence and various meteorological variables. Such relationships may be treated as components in separable point process models for wildfire activity. The resulting models can be used for comparative purposes in order to assess the predictive performance of the Burning Index

Topics: Estimation, kernel smoothing, model evaluation, point process, wildfires
