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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Canyons or ridges are associated with a large number of fatal accidents produced during forest fires all over the world. A contribution to the understanding of fire behaviour in these terrain conditions is given in this paper. The basic geometrical...

The vectoring of wind and slope effects on a flame front is considered. Mathematical methods for vectoring are presented and compared to results of laboratory experiments. The concept of multiple standard fire spread directions is presented. The...

The standard formula used to estimate the radiation extinction coefficient, kb (m-1), of solid porous natural fuel beds is examined and tested against laboratory experiments with isotropic beds of pine needles in the range of packing ratio, &#946...

Forest fire behaviour analysis and prediction is based on the assumption that for a given set of boundary conditions a steady-state of fire propagation exists with a well-defined rate of spread. The evolution of a fire front for linear and point...
