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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Many areas of the boreal forest of Alaska contain deep layers of moss, duff, and peat, resulting in a large pool of biomass that potentially can burn and smolder for long periods of time creating hazardous smoke episodes for local residents and...

To assess values of air quality and visibility at risk from wildland fire in the United States, we generated a 40-year database that includes twice daily values of wind, mixing height, and a ventilation index that is the product of windspeed and mixing...

A comprehensive evaluation of the vertical structure of a smoldering smoke plume was afforded by a unique combination of tethersonde measurements (from ground level to about 400 m above ground level (AGL) or 274-674 m above sea level (AGL)), lidar...

In Alaska, the Canadian Forest Fire Weather Index (FWI) system is used to track the effect of weather of fuel moisture conditions. The prescription of the FrostFire experimental burn (near Fairbanks) was based on the basic weather conditions as well as...
