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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Wildland fire is the dominant disturbance agent of the boreal forest of Alaska, which covers about 114 million ac. of the southcentral and interior regions, representing about 15% of the forested area of the U.S. Currently, about 80% of the population...

Concerns about wildland fuel levels and a growing wildland-urban interface (WUI) have pushed wildland fire risk mitigation strategies to the forefront of fire management activities. Mechanical (e.g., shearblading) and manual (e.g., thinnings) fuel...

During 2002, fuel loadings were measured at 150 plots in three major fuel types across Anchorage's wildland-urban interface. A suite of Fire Danger Rating System (FDRS) fire behavior variables was sampled to parameterize custom fuel models for use...

In order to keep our focus and avoid unnecessary mission creep that could ultimately prevent us from achieving our objectives, we plan to invite specific personnel and agencies to this work shop. Our plan is to place three focal points at the workshop...
