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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.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 chapter attempts to describe a fairly recent and major advance in the modeling of wildfires: the coupling of a cloud-resolving numerical prediction model with a simple fire-spread and wildfire behavior model, so that the atmosphere-fire is treated...

This synthesis paper presents a model for estimating the buildup of soil organic matter in boreal deciduous and coniferous forests. A basic model was developed using data from a well-studied Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) forest (SWECON site) and...

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...

The explanation often given for the large wildfires that have burned each year in North America in the last two decades is that fire suppression after the 1950s produced a buildup of fuel and changed the landscape-age mosaic (e.g., Gayton 1998; Smalley...

A study was made of buried seeds in 62 cylindrical cores of litter and soil (10 cm diameter X 10 cm depth) collected from 10 sites, on which fires had occurred 42-180 years previously, on upland soil with a vegetation of lichen woodland and a tree...

Lightning ignition of wildland fuels plays a major role in the maintenance and evolution of ecosystems. Lightning not only ignites fire but also weakens trees, facilitating insect and disease attack, causes physical damage, and kills trees and groups...
