This dataset represents the historical mean number of fires per year burned per ~ 4 km pixel, averaged for each HUC5 watershed, simulated by the model MC1 for the 30-year period 1971-2000. Historical mean number of fires per year per ~4 km pixel was averaged across each HUC5 watershed. Watersheds represent 5th level (HUC5, 10-digit) hydrologic unit boundaries and were acquired from the Natural Resources Conservation Service. Background: The dynamic global vegetation model MC1 (see Bachelet et al.2001) was used to simulate vegetation dynamics, associated carbon and nitrogen cycle, water budget, a nd wild fire impacts for OR, WA, AZ and NM, for a project funded by the USDA Forest Service (PNW09-JV-11261900-003). The MC1 model was [...]
