Wildland – urban interface housing growth during the 1990 s in California , Oregon , and Washington

  title={Wildland – urban interface housing growth during the 1990 s in California , Oregon , and Washington},
  author={Roger B. Hammer and Volker C. Radeloff and Jeremy S. Fried and Susan I. Stewart},
In the present study, we examine housing growth in California, Oregon, and Washington in the wildland–urban interface (WUI), the area where homes and other structures abut or intermingle with wildland vegetation. We combine housing density information from the 1990 and 2000 USA censuses with land cover information from the 1992/93 National Land Cover Dataset to demarcate the location and extent of the WUI and its growth, both in terms of area and number of housing units during the 1990s.
