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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Rate of spread is a key fire behavior characteristic. Spread rate is thought to accelerate after ignition to an equilibrium value, then vary over the burning period due to variation in wind speed and direction, and fuel conditions. Using data from...

There are few aspects of wildland fire that attract the public and media attention as does fire in the wildland-urban interface. A relatively new phenomenon in the United States, these fires now burn or damage hundreds of homes each year from Florida...

Federal land management agencies in the U.S. have responded to recent severe wildfire seasons with plans to greatly expand fuel treatment programs. These plans are often accompanied by ecological justifications to assuage environmental objections to...
