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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.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 direct seeding programme in Ontario has increasd from 80 acres in 1956 to a maximum of 11,135 acres in 1967. Seed is applied by a variety of methods including fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft, snowmobiles and a variety of manual and mechanical...

Between 1931 and 1961 Canadian forest fire researchers gathered a vast quantity of data on weather, fuel moisture and test fire behavior. The original purpose of the data was primarily for the development of forest fire danger tables. The data was...

Fungal deterioration of second-growth Douglas-fir logs, felled each month from August 1961 to May 1962, was studied 2, 4, and 6 years after felling. Decay increased 10% of log volumes after 2 years to 47% after 6 years. The rate of decay, particularly...

Moisture content, owing to its direct effect on flammability of forest fuels, must be incorporated into a fire danger rating system. Accurate indicators of moisture content in different fuels are particularly important when separate burning tables are...

The authors present scaling relationships for modeling pulsating fires. Data gathered from various sizes of pulsating fires compared favorably with the predicted relationships between fire diameter and pulsation frequency.

What is flammability? The author suggests that it consists of ignitibility, sustainability, and combustibility. He defines ignitibility in terms of fuel properties and heat source intensity. Similar methods for determining sustainability and...

A theoretical model is constructed that represents quasi-steady fire spread in solid fuel arrays. The continuum representation employs descriptors that follow naturally from existing flame theory and that correspond to real observables. A set of '...

Numerical solutions of the time-dependent diffusion equation were used to evaluate the influence of species and size on drying rates of heartwood of six tree species-four of them common forest fuels and two representing extremes of microstructures in...

Standard drying conditions in the laboratory have been related to the diurnal fluctuations of temperature and humidity to define a standard drying day for forest fuels. The mean equilibrium moisture content of a fuel on a standard drying day is...

Fire retardants used in combating forest and range fires have been accused of killing livestock by nitrate poisoning. Ammonia-based retardants cannot cause nitrate poisoning directly. They must first enter the soil, be converted to nitrates, then be...
