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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

The unknowns in wildland fire phenomenology lead to a simplified expirical model approach for predicting the onset of crown fires in live coniferous forests on level terrain. Model parameterization is based on a data set (n = 71) generated from...

A large region of central and western Canada experienced a particularly severe forest fire season during 1980 in terms of the number of fire starts, area burned, and suppression expenditures. In Alberta, most of the fire occurred during April and May...

Fire spread and flame temperature were examined in a series of nine experimental crown fires conducted in the Northwest Territories, Canada. Detailed maps of fire front progression revealed areas with higher rates of spread in the order of tens of...

The effect of crown fires on Pinus banksiana Lamb. regeneration was studied in separate forest- and cone-burning experiments. Nine plots (0.56-2.25 ha) of jack pine trees near Fort Providence, Northwest Territories, were burned using crown fires to...

Can wildland fire behavior really be predicted? That depends on how accurate you expect the prediction to be. The minute-by-minute movement of a fire will probably never be predictable- certainly not from weather conditions forecasted many hours before...

Boreal forests are fire-dependent systems that would lose their vigour and faunal and floral diversity in the absence of fire. The objectives of natural area preservation imply maintaining the original character of the land and perpetuation of those...
