Description: For reasons of economy it may be necessary to close one or several fire-weather stations in a protection area. Since it is logical to close those stations that will have the least impact on the ability of the fire manager to assess overall fire danger, it is desirable to know if there is duplication in monitoring fire climate, and to what degree. A method is proposed for determining this duplication, based on an analysis of six elements of fire climate. Stations are grouped on the basis of similarity of sequences of these fire climate elements over the fire season.
