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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

A computer simulation model, FARSITE, includes existing fire behavior models for surface, crown, spotting, point-source fire acceleration, and fuel moisture. The model’s components and assumptions are documented. Simulations were run for simple...

We describe a model that estimates the optimal total expected cost of a wildland fire, given uncertainty in both flame length and fire-line width produced. In the model, a sequence of possible fire-line perimeters is specified, each with a forecasted...

PLUMP is a general-purpose, one-dimensional plume rise model for wildfire and prescribed fire planning. It calculates the characteristics of fire plumes, including vertical velocity, water content, excess temperature, rain, and ice. The model can also...

We review and compare well-studied examples of five large, infrequent disturbances (LIDs)-fire, hurricanes, tornadoes, volcanic eruptions, and floods-in terms of the physical processes involved, the damage patterns they create in forested landscapes,...

Disturbance events vary in intensity, size, and frequency, but few opportunities exist to study those that are extreme on more than one of these gradients. This article characterizes successional processes that occur following infrequent disturbance...

Fire is a prevalent natural disturbance in most of British Columbia's forest ecosystems. Recently, scientists and forest managers have recognized the important role fire plays in regulating forest ecosystems and maintaining biodiversity. In...

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. wyomingensiis), to be...
