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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

There were large interannual variations in burned area in the boreal region (ranging between 3.0 and 23.6x106 ha yr-1) for the period of 1992 and 1995-2003 which resulted in corresponding variations in total carbon and carbon monoxide emissions. We...

In summary, the sensitivety study presented in this chapter supports the overall theme of this book (i.e., that fires in the boreal forest play a central role in the exchange of carbon between this biome and the atmosphere). Through a series of...

In boreal forests, which contain large amounts of the world's terrestrial organic carbon, fire is a natural and fundamental disturbance regime essential in controlling many ecosystem processes. As a result of predicted climate change in the future...

Abstract from introduction: 'Over the next 50-100 years, the predicted doubling of the atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration is expected to increase summer temperatures up to 4-6 degrees C at higher latitudes (Boer et al. 1992: Maxwell 1992:...
