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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.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

Project Objectives: We request support from the JFSP to: 1. adapt FFE-FVS to support fire-related economic analysis by linking FFE-FVS to IASELECT (Wiitala 1992) and CHEAPOII (Horn and others 1986). IASELECT quantifies the optimal economic performance...

A method is presented for the evaluation of the heating efficiency required for ignition as a spreading fire closes with fuel. An array of thermocouples was implanted in the fuel ahead of the fire to obtain the heat absorbed by the fuel prior to...

Wilderness fire science has progressed since the last major review of the topic, but it was significantly affected by the large fire events of 1988. Strides have been made in both fire behavior and fire effects, and in the issues of scaling, yet much...

Many U. S. forests, especially those with historically short-interval, low- to moderate-severity fire regimes, are too dense and have excessive quantities of fuels. Widespread treatments are needed to restore ecological integrity and reduce the high...

In March 2000, representatives from several U.S. Department of Interior agencies met to discuss potential applications of Landsat 7 data in wildland fire management. Pilot projects in Alaska and the Great Basin were among the action items from that...

Following a prescribed fire, structural effects were measured over a 4-year postfire period. Initial tree mortality was concentrated in small diameter and height classes of Abies concolor (Gord. And Glend) Lindl., Pinus lambertiana Dougl., and Pinus...

An important challenge in global-change research is to stimulate short-term transient changes in climate, disturbance regime, and recruitment that drive long-term vegetation distributions. Spatial features (e.g., topographic barriers) and processes,...

Several methods are available for estimating the moisture content of 10-h response time fuels in the U.S. National Fire Danger Rating System (NFDRS). These fuels are represented by an array of four 1.27 cm diameter ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Dougl...
