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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

General warming in the Northern Hemisphere has been recorded since the end of the 1800s following the Little Ice Age. Records of glacier retreat during the last 100 years over the entire globe independently confirmed the recorded trend in global...

The extent and consequences of global land-cover and land-use change are increasingly apparent. One consequence not so apparent is the altered structure of plants belowground. This paper examines such belowground changes, emphasizing the interaction of...

Dynamic general vegetation models (DGVMs) represent a relatively new technology and exist in several different varieties. Two broad classes are process-based and statistical-empirical. This discussion will focus on the first of these. Among process-...

Many U. S. forests, especially those with historically short-interval, low- to moderate-severity fire regimes, are too dense and have excessive quantities of fuels. Widespread treatments are needed to restore ecological integrity and reduce the high...

Fires in the northern interior have long been known to smolder for long periods. Because emission rates from smoldering smoke are small in comparison to rates of emissions during flaming, however, and because it is difficult to monitor smoldering fires...

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...
