Pengaruh Curah Hujan dan Terjadinya Kebakaran Hutan dan Lahan Gambut di Kabupaten Tanjung Jabung Timur, Provinsi Jambi
East Tanjung Jabung Regency is one of the easternmost districts of Jambi Province and has the largest peatland area in Jambi Province. The research aims to determine the effect of rainfall and its relation to hotspots as an indicator of forest and peatland fires in East Tanjung Jabung Regency, Jambi Province. The data used in this study were sourced from NASA FIRMS for hotspots and NASA POWER for rainfall, which were analyzed descriptively and correlationally. The results of the study show that the number of annual hotspots from 2018 to 2022 is 1696, with 1075 points on peatlands and 621 others on mineral lands. The increase occurred in 2019 by 1636 points due to fire incidents that covered 5,151.02 ha. The results of the correlation analysis show that rainfall with hotspots does not have a significant correlation with a strong negative correlation coefficient, so an increase in hotspots is followed by a decrease in rainfall, and vice versa.
