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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Increases in fire frequency, extent, and severity are expected to strongly impact the structure and function of boreal forest ecosystems. An important function of the boreal forest is its ability to sequester and store carbon (C). Increasing...

A microwave backscattering model for shrub clumps was presented. The modelling approach was to treat the clumps as scatterers and attenuators. Three major model components were defined: surface backscattering, clump volume scattering, and multiple path...

The cold climate and resulting low decomposition rates in the ground layers of boreal forests (such as those found in interior Alaska) result in the development of deep organic soils. In turn, these soils have an important role in many physical,...

The landmark paper of Seiler and Crutzen (1980) clearly laid out the scientific rational as to why the study of biomass burning was essential in terms of completely understanding greenhouse gasses emissions from the land surface to the atmosphere....

Past approaches to estimating the amounts of carbon released during fires in boreal forests have depended on two types of data: 1) those collected during prescribed burns; or 2) those collected from limited number of points in naturally-occurring fires...

As discussed in the introduction to this section, fire serves an important ecological role in the boreal forest, especially in those processes controlling the exchange of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases with the atmosphere. One of the key...
