spatial variations in disturbance regimes may influence geographic patterns of vegetation ( Parker et al. 2001 ; Bond and Keeley 2005 ). Here, we investigate how climate, specifically moisture, influences geographic patterns of wildfire in the eastern United States. Fire is an influential disturbance agent and major natural hazard that presents complex management challenges. Many factors, such as vegetation and land use, affect fire occurrence ( Pyne 1982 ; Alaback et al. 2003 ), but climate is of

. Four models are taken from the twentieth-century climate change model simulations. Two models are from GFDL: CM2.0 and CM2.1. The other two models are the MPI ECHAM5 and the HadCM3. The remaining three models are from NCEP. These models have the same physics and dynamical structure, but they have different horizontal resolutions: T382, T126, and T62. There are two hydroclimate regimes over the United States. The western interior states are drier and have larger water holding capacity. Therefore
