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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.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

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...

Existing records show that five wildfires burned more than 1,600 hectares of tundra on Alaska's Arctic Slope. Environmental conditions suitable for lightning, ignition, and burning occur more often than previously recognized at this northern...

The behavior of single point-ignition and line-ignition experimental fires was studied in upland black spruce (Picea mariana [Mill.] B.S.P.)-lichen (Stereocaulon paschale [L.] Hoffm.) woodland stands at Porter Lake in the Caribou Range of the Northwest...

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...

Hot-spotting containment rates were determined for 18 fires of various intensities in two common boreal forest cover types: 8 in jack pine (Pinus banksiana Lamb.) and 10 in black spruce (Picea mariana (Mill.) B.S.P.). Hot-spotting containment rates did...

Because of the importance of emissions from fires in biomass fuels globally, we developed a highly portable Fire Atmosphere Sampling System (FASS) for sampling smoke emissions. Emissions were sampled with the FASS packages from a variety of fuel and...

The fire characteristics chart has been expanded and modified to indicate crown fire behavior. Any point on the chart provides a simultaneous representation of rate of spread, unit energy, fireline intensity, flame length, and power of the fire. The...
