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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

A series of three 4—acre plots in a jack pine cut over were burned at three degrees of fire hazard. The weather, fire behaviour, and effects are reported, and a general conclusion drawn by others was confirmed: slash hazard is reduced by any running...

From the text...'A fire-control problem of major proportions in B.C., as in many other areas, results from hazardous accumulations of logging slash. The basic question is whether it is wiser to give cut-over areas added protection and tolerate the...

It is generally recognized that logging slash, by increasing the concentration of forest fuels, creates a high forest fire hazard. The most severe fire hazard is found on clearcuts where fuels are usually continuous and exposed to the dessicating...

The the Challenge Experimental Forest, 29 acres of slash were broadcast burned on five small clearcut plots (2 to 10 acres) at a cost of $57.00 per acre. Fuel-weight measurements showed reductions of 68 to 84% after the burn. Modifications to plot size...
