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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Fighting large wildland fires is often compared to a military operation. Each involves such things as: an organization with a general at the head, massive movements of personnel and equipment; tactical aerial support, and long periods of combat and...

We begin our study of wildland fire with the basic principles and mechanisms of the combustion process-fire fundamentals. In the next chapter we look at wildland fire as an event. Fire behavior is what a fire does, the dynamics of the fire event. In...
