Abstract:

Understanding the role of vegetation fires in the Earth system is an important environmental problem. Although fire occurrence is influenced by natural factors, human activity related to land use and​ management has altered the temporal patterns of fire in several regions of the world. Hence, for a better​ insight into fires regimes, it is of special interest to analyze where human activity has altered fire​ seasonality. For doing so, multimodality tests are a useful tool for determining the number of annual re​ peaks. Some systematic applications of the test will be shown in different world areas, accompanied by a​FDR correction which accounts for the spatial dependence of the data.
