FAREA_BURNED calculation

Hi,

When the fire module is turned on in clm4.5, the history file contains a variable called FAREA_BURNED. The long_name is "timestep fractional area burned". Within my monthly history file the cell_methods for FAREA_BURNED says "time: mean".  Because the timestep of the land model is 1800 seconds, do I need to multiply the FAREA_BURNED value by the number of timesteps within a month (1440) to get the total FAREA_BURNED for the month?  

Thanks for any help!

Chris
