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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

The main idea is that, as the forests of the planet are getting smaller, too much wood is cut and the forests are made too slow, there are also large forest fires due to excessive heat, of people arguing with the law, or simply by chance. Extinguishing...

Recent large fires and reburns in tundra north of the Brooks Range in Alaska have raised interest in the North Slope fire regime and induced some speculation that that it may be changing. The author analysed agency fire records, lightning detection...

Background: Soil properties have important effects on fire occurrence and spread, but soils are often overlooked in fire prediction models. Quantifying soil−fire linkages is limited by information in conventional soil maps, but digital soil mapping...

Purpose of Review: Prevention effectiveness relies on knowledge about the spatio-temporal likelihood of fire occurrence and whether fires are a result of natural processes or human influence. Such knowledge can be used to develop more effective tools...

Despite the low temperatures and short growing seasons of northern ecosystems, wildland fire is the dominant ecological disturbance in the boreal forest, the world’s largest terrestrial biome. Wildland fire also affects adjacent tundra regions. This...

As a pervasive disturbance agent operating at many spatial and temporal scales, wildland fire is a key abiotic factor affecting forest health both positively and negatively. In some ecosystems, for example, wildland fires have been essential for...
