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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.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 unknowns in fire phenomenology lead to simplified empirical approachs to build models designed to predict the initiation and spread of crown fires. This information is needed to support decision making in a large array of fire management problems....

Large moderate to severe high intensity stand replacement fires characterize the fire regime in the boreal forest of Interior Alaska. It is the moisture content of the moss profile that largely determines ignition probability and depth of fuel...

The behavior of free-burning forest fires is controlled by the fire environment (i.e., the surrounding conditions, influences, and modifying forces of topography, fuels, and weather). Successful fire management depends very heavily upon, among other...
