Title:
A probabilistic model of the influence of weather, geography and humans on wildfire occurrences in the Mediterranean 
Abstract:
Occurrences of wildfires are related to weather conditions and human intervention and can only be predicted probabilistically. In this paper, the potential of Bayesian Networks for such predictions is inves-tigated. A Bayesian Network is constructed, which expresses the effect of weather conditions, land cover and human presence on the rate of wildfire occurrences. The model is based on both temporal and spatial data. The parameters of the model are inferred from data obtained for the Greek Medi...    »
