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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

This paper discusses the overall effects fire has on the carbon budget of boreal forests Studies on using the boreal forest as a means to sequester carbon have not adequately accounted for these effects, Among other approaches, it has been suggested...

The importance of measuring and monitoring fire related ecosystem characteristics in forests is recognized and is the focus of several new studies. In this paper we present a discussion on the use of remote sensing for the study of boreal forest fire...

Patterns of biomass burning and pyrogenic carbon release in Alaskan boreal forests were studied by comparing data collected in adjacent burned and unburned stands. While the majority of the data were collected from the organic mats of mature black...

A microwave backscattering model for shrub clumps was presented. The modelling approach was to treat the clumps as scatterers and attenuators. Three major model components were defined: surface backscattering, clump volume scattering, and multiple path...

Fire disturbance in boreal forests can release carbon to the atmosphere stored in both the aboveground vegetation and the organic soil layer. Estimating pyrogenic emissions of carbon released during biomass burning in these forests is useful for...

To reconcile observations of decomposition rates, carbon inventories, and net primary production (NPP), we estimated long-term averages for C exchange in boreal forests near Thompson, Manitoba. Soil drainage as defined by water table, moss cover, and...
