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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Current methods for predicting fire-induced mortality in shrubs and trees are largely empirical. These methods do not exhibit a wide range of applicability and are not readily linked to duff burning, soil heating, and surface fire behavior models. New...

Soil heating associated with large-scale crown fires is of great concern to land managers. The relationship between crown fire intensity and fire severity is not clear. Crown fires have been linked to varying degrees of soil heating and changes in soil...

This study presents spatially and temporally resolved measurements of air temperatures and radiant energy fluxes in a boreal forest (Pinus banksiana-Picea mariana) crown fire in Northwest Territories, Canada. Measurements were collected 3.1, 6.2, 9.2,...

A new one-dimensional heat conduction model for predicting stem heating during fires is presented. Themodel makes use of moisture- and temperature-dependent thermal properties for layers of bark and wood. The thermal aspects of the processes of bark...
