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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

To assess values of air quality and visibility at risk from wildland fire in the United States, we generated a 40-year database that includes twice daily values of wind, mixing height, and a ventilation index that is the product of windspeed and mixing...

In Alaska, the Canadian Forest Fire Weather Index (FWI) system is used to track the effect of weather of fuel moisture conditions. The prescription of the FrostFire experimental burn (near Fairbanks) was based on the basic weather conditions as well as...

The moisture content of material on a forest floor can play a significant role in its potential for fire ignition and resulting severity, especially in boreal ecosystems that contain deep layers of moss. To better understand the effect of weather and...
