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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Aerosol optical properties derived from Sun photometry were investigated in terms of climatological trends at two Sun photometer sites significantly affected by western Canadian boreal forest fire smoke and in terms of a 2-week series of smoke events...

This study presents a comprehensive investigation of fires across the Canadian boreal forest zone by means of satellite-based remote sensing. A fire-detection algorithm was designed to monitor fires using daily Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer...

This paper evaluates annual fire maps that were produced from NOAA-14/AVHRR imagery using an algorithm described in a companion paper (Li et al., International Journal of Remote Sensing, 21, 3057û3069, 2000 (this issue)). Burned area masks covering...

Biomass burning releases significant amounts of trace gases and smoke aerosol into the atmosphere. This has an impact on the Earth's radiation budget, the magnitude of which has not yet been well quantified. Satellite remote sensing is well suited...

The majority of burning in the boreal forest zone consists of stand replacement fires larger than 10 km2 occurring in remote, sparsely populated regions. Satellite remote sensing using coarse resolution (~1 km) sensors is thus well suited in...

A comprehensive investigation of Canadian boreal forest fires was conducted using NOAA-AVHRR imagery. Alogorithms were developed to (1) detect active forest fires, (2) map burned areas on daily and annual basis, and (3) estimate fire emissions based...

Biomass burning in North America (NA) occurs primarily over forested regions. The fires are usually so intense that they not only destroy vast tracts of forest, but also release large quantities of chemical species (CO, CO2, methane, etc.) and...
