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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

From the text ... 'It should be clear to everyone concerned that weather conditions and the availability of fuel largely control the behavior of fires. Since projections of actual fire growth depend on weather forecasts, and the weather beyond...

We present results from ongoing research into 20th Century fire regimes in two large Rocky Mountain wilderness areas. Fire patterns are represented as digital fire atlases based on archival forest service data. We find that spatial and temporal fire...

Changes in climatic conditions may influence both forest biomass accumulation rates and natural disturbance regimes. While changes in biomass accumulation of forests under various climatic conditions have been described by yield equations, large...

To reconstruct a natural fire regime it is necessary to estimate the historical fire cycle when human influence was less evident. This can be accomplished through the construction of a fire-origin map. The dynamic fire regime is a result of...

This paper discusses the occurrence of man-caused forest fires during the summer fire season in a section of northwestern Ontario. Fire occurrence is viewed as being a chance process and a stochastic model is developed to describe it. The results of...
