Project description

In his paper, Connor explores the relationship between rising temperatures and forest fires across the US using historical data. By using historical data, he is able to determine the overall change of temperature throughout the years and how it has affected forest fires, either increasing or decreasing the number of forest fires that are caused. He hypothesizes that due to global temperatures increasing, forest fires have become much more common. Connor and his mentor worked together to analyze data in R in order to understand the relationship between the two and create visuals conveying their results.
