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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

We correct the variance for the rate of spread of a fire through a non-homogeneous fuel as described in Catchpole et al. (1989, Ecol. Modelling, 48: 101-112). The spatial dependence of the fuel types can greatly influence this variance; a phenomenon...

Between 1961 and 1963 two balsam fir cutovers were burned under low fire hazard conditions. The treatment eliminated practically all balsam fir advance growth and reduced the quantity of slash and other debris. The reduction was considered sufficient...
