Summary

We compiled and analyzed a database of burn permits for prescribed fires conducted in Florida and Georgia from 2006-2016. The dataset contains the number of permitted burns and expected acres burned by county in the two states for every day in the 11 year period. Also included are the county-wide average daily weather conditions for temperature and relative humidity, calculated from the University of Idaho gridMet dataset.

Purpose

Permit data were obtained to assess the degree to which days with prescribed burns fell within burn window conditions as defined by the gridMET data for a set of actual prescribed burns. This information was necessary to be able to project the degree to which future burn window conditions would either shrink or expand as the climate warms.
