  • Examining the relationship between snowfall and wildfire patterns in the western United States
  • Applied climatology ; Correlation ; Forest fire ; Snow ; Snow cover ; United States of America ; Western United States
  • The AA. conducted an examination of the spatial and temporal relationships and correlations between snow cover and wildfire from 1986 through 1996 in the 11 western states of the United States. Snow-cover and wildfire data were aggregated
  • and normalized for each state, as well as for the entire western region. No strong correlation was found for the entire western United States, nor did state aggregations show signs of consistent yearly correlation between measures of snow cover and wildfire
  • . Nevertheless, a few states experienced above-average acreage burned totals following winters with above-average snow cover.

  • The paper tests for spatial spillover effects of state-level telecommunications infrastructure investment on state output, using panel data for 48 U.S. states from 1970 to 1997. Findings indicate that a state benefits from its own telecommunications
  • infrastructure, but telecommunications investment by other states has a negative impact on its output growth path, and proximity amplifies this negative spillover effect.
