Increasing expenditures for forest fire retardant and the development of more efficient delivery systems have emphasized the need for more knowledge on the transmission and retention characteristics of wildland fuels. In a series of tests, retardant...
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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.
Performance requirements for a real-time recording, bispectral, line-scanning infrared equipment are outlined for application to forest fire detection and mapping.
