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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Modelling of the wind effect on the rate of spread of a flame in a forest fire usually employs a wind velocity measured at mid-flame height. An alternative formulation is proposed in this paper, based on the wall shear-stress produced by the wind on...

Smoldering ground fires can raise mineral soil temperatures above 300°C for several hours with peak temperatures near 600°C. Such temperatures can result in the decomposition of organic material and kill important soil organisms. The heat evolved per...
