Presented by Jill Johnstone at the 2018 Alaska Fire Science Consortium Spring Fire Science Workshop.
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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Acute and chronic exposure to wildfire smoke can cause numerous documented cardiopulmonary effects, although determining the casual components within the thousands of different chemicals found in both the particle and gas phases remains a toxicological...
Short-term exposures to ambient particulate matter (PM) are associated with increased morbidity and mortality in the exposed population, and these same patterns have been noted during wildland fire episodes. Since the scale and frequency of wildfires...
Utilities can recover from wildfires and extreme weather events with resiliency plans and operation designs that address subsequent water quality challenges.
