This repository contains lake-specific watershed (1500 m buffers) fire histories for US lakes >= 4 ha based on Monitoring Trends in Burn Severity (fire type and burn severity class). 8702 lake watersheds experienced at least one fire from 1984-2015. This repository contains analysis scripts (R) and data products associated with the manuscript McCullough et al. (2019) “Do lakes feel the burn? Ecological consequences of increasing exposure of lakes to fire in the continental US”. Global Change Biology. The repository is an April 2019 snapshot of the github repository https://github.com/cont-limno/DoLakesFeelTheBurn for when the manuscript was accepted.
