Alaska Reference Database

The Alaska Reference Database originated as the standalone Alaska Fire Effects Reference Database, a ProCite reference database maintained by former BLM-Alaska Fire Service Fire Ecologist Randi Jandt. It was expanded under a Joint Fire Science Program grant for the FIREHouse project (The Northwest and Alaska Fire Research Clearinghouse). It is now maintained by the Alaska Fire Science Consortium and FRAMES, and is hosted through the FRAMES Resource Catalog. The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Background: When fighting high-intensity wildfire, firefighters may construct a defensive fireline (fuel break) away from the raging front. The path of the fireline is the key to successful fire containment. However, the study of fireline path...

Firebrand spotting is a major cause for structure losses in wildland-urban interface (WUI) fires. When firebrands land nearby and accumulate into groups or piles, they can act as a more competent ignition source compared to single firebrands. While...

For the past two decades, satellite-derived activef fire data have been used in a multitude of operational applications and in a large and growing body of research on the role of fire within the Earth system. More recent work with satellite-based...

Grassfires in Canada’s western prairies have been observed to propagate over multi-hour periods with sustained rates of spread in excess of 6.0 km/h. For example, on December 14, 1997, a human-caused grassfire starting west of Claresholm in southern...

To collect partner and employee input on the Wildfire Crisis Strategy 10-year Implementation Plan, the Forest Service and National Forest Foundation hosted a series of roundtable discussions in the winter and spring of 2022. Individual roundtables were...

Wildfire propagation is a non-linear and multiscale system in which multiple physical and chemical processes are involved. One critical mechanism in the spread of wildfires is so-called fire-spotting: a random phenomenon that occurs when embers are...

Based on analysis of the interaction between a spreading fire and its surrounding environment, in nominally constant and uniform boundary conditions, it is observed that the evolution of the fire front is characterised by fluctuations of its properties...

Fire location and burning area are essential parameters for estimating fire emissions. However, ground-based fire data (such as fire perimeters from incident reports) are often not available with the timeliness required for real-time forecasting. Fire...

A stochastic model motivated by the Lagrangian transported probability density function method for turbulent reacting flows and the cellular automata approach for forest fires was put together to simulate propagation of fires in terrains with...

Coupled atmosphere-fire modeling is recognized as a relevant approach for the representation of the interaction between a wildland fire and local meteorology at landscape scales. The atmospheric model component used in the coupled system is based on...
