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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

[From lead-in] Although there are many other fire behavior knowledge gaps and research needs that I could list here (e.g., development of models or guidelines for predicting fire vortex generation, plume-dominated or convectively dominated fires and...

Climate warming and drying are modifying the fire dynamics of many boreal forests, moving them towards a regime with a higher frequency of extreme fire years characterized by large burns of high severity. Plot-scale studies indicate that increased burn...

The National Wildfire Coordinating Group definition of extreme fire behavior (EFB) indicates a level of fire behavior characteristics that ordinarily precludes methods of direct control action. One or more of the following is usually involved: high...

In his pioneering work on the common denominators of fire behavior associated with fatal and near-fatal wildland fires published in 1977, Carl Wilson pointed out that many firefighters were surprised to learn that tragedy and near-miss incidents...

Four of the vertical fuel profiles presented in Fig. 3a on page 1552 of this paper were inadvertently mislabelled (i.e., Plot 5 is Plot 8, Plot 6 is Plot 5, Plot 7 is Plot 6, and Plot 8 is Plot 7). Thus, Fig. 3a and its associated caption should have...
