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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Despite a half century of observation and data gathering, our knowledge of fire ecology in eastern hardwood forests is, for the most part, rudimentary. Little work has been done on measuring time/temperature profiles of fires, surface heat transfer...

Seven units (about 2 ha each) of black spruce - feather moss forest were experimentally burned over a range of fuel moisture conditions during the summer of 1978. Surface woody fuels were sparse and the principal carrier fuel was the forest floor (...

In the National Fire-Danger Rating System (NFDRS), a correction is added to fuel moisture stick values to offset weathering effects. This correction is now being adjusted to compensate for different weathering rates in different climates. The...

Sufficient data exist within the literature to allow the woody biomass of two subspecies of Artemisia tridentata, basin big sagebrush (Artemesia tridentata ssp. tridentata), and Wyoming big sagebrush (Artemesia tridentata ssp. wyomingensis), to be...

An analysis, made by a cost-plus-net-value-change criterion, revealed that the amount of money spent nationwide to achieve an efficient fire protection on nonfederal forest and range lands is appropriate. However, improvements in efficiency can be...

Rates of weight loss and release of N, P, K, S, Ca, Mg, Na, and Cl from litter of several species in jarrah (E. marginata Donn ex Sm.) forest were measured in relation to site fire history and soil type. Weight loss from leaf litter decreased in the...
