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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Surface fire intensity (kW m[-1]) and crown fire initiation were predicted using Rothermel's (1972) and Van Wagner's (1977) models, with fuel data from 47 subalpine conifer stands and 35 years of daily weather (moisture contents and...

We have constructed a model for the transient heating of cones showing that there is a logarithmic relationship between the time (sec) to cone opening (releasing viable seeds) or cone ignition and temperature (°K) in the convective column above a fire...

This report discusses a proposed new fire retardant system and the laboratory analysis and evaluation of the retardant solution produced. The proposed system utilizes ammonium sulfate, delivered dry and liquified at the base, as the active fire...

In this paper we present evidence for a large-scale (synoptic-scale) meteorological mechanism controlling the fire frequency in the southern Canadian Rocky Mountains. This large-scale control may explain the similarity in average fire frequencies and...

The variances of species abundances from 141 upland stands are partitioned into habitat and fire frequency. Principal components analysis is then performed on each of these partitions. The habitat ordination has a topographic-canopy coverage gradient...
