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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Lightning causes most wildfires in the western United States, and is a major cause of fire elsewhere in the U.S. Because most lightning occurs with significant precipitation, however, simple predictions of Lightning Activity Level (LAL) do not...

Once smoke enters the atmosphere, its concentration at any one place or time depends on mechanisms of transport and dispersion. By transport, we mean whatever carries a plume vertically or horizontally in the atmosphere. Dispersion simply is the...
