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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.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 scheme is presented for dealing with the full range of fire behavior in conifer forests. It is based on empirical data from fires in Canadian forests plus a theory to describe the physical conditions for the transition from surface to crown fire. In...

The small world network model is extended to study fire spread through forest fuels. The proposed model includes the short-range radiative and convective effects from the flame as well as the long-range “spotting” effect of firebrands. It uses a...
