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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

A demonstration package of predictive models for assessing the risk of forest damage from wind, fire and snow has been produced which can be accessed via the World Wide Web (WWW). The paper describes how this demonstration provides a common point of...

Past simulation studies using a variety of models have generally agreed that climatic warming could have adverse effects on forests, including large-scale diebacks in some regions and drastic range shrinkages of many species. These effects should be...

In semi-arid interior Alaska, precipitation is critical in regulating many important ecological and biogeochemical processes. For example, the growth of upland white spruce is strongly limited by growing season precipitation, and greenhouse trace gas...

Data from a sparse network of climate stations in Alaska were interpolated to provide 1-km resolution maps of mean monthly temperature and precipitation-variables that are required at high spatial resolution for input into regional models of ecological...

Biome differences in surface energy balance strongly affect climate. However, arctic vegetation is considered sufficiently uniform that only a single arctic land surface type is generally used in climate models. Field measurements in northern Alaska...

We investigated whether techniques developed to evaluate qualitative lake-level changes in the temperate zone can be used in sub-arctic and arctic Alaska. We focused on aquatic pollen records and sediment properties (loss-on-ignition and magnetic...

Thirty-one fossil beetle assemblages from central and eastern Beringia (Alaska, the Yukon Territory, and the now-submerged Bering Land Bridge) have yielded seasonal temperature estimates for the interval 43,550-9250 14C yr before present (yr B.P.)....
