Spatial analysis of ignition and fire frequency to support training requirements and protect natural resources.

Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton is committed to developing strategies to meet their stewardship responsibilities in support of their training requirements and to protect the base’s natural resources.  CBI to helping them better understand the processes affecting the magnitude and extent of fires on the base, and the relationship between fires and natural resources.  This understanding will help them minimize habitat conversion and provide the best operational support possible (increase training days).

The primary focus of this effort is to develop statistical models and analysis of variables associated with the fire regime on the Base and to conduct spatial analysis of ignition and fire frequency patterns. These analyses will be further used in the development of decision support tools that will identify optimum strategies for meeting specific management objectives.
