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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

For reasons of economy it may be necessary to close one or several fire-weather stations in a protection area. Since it is logical to close those stations that will have the least impact on the ability of the fire manager to assess overall fire danger...

Wildfires play a multiple role in the distribution of dwarf mistletoes - they may either inhibit or encourage these parasites depending primarily on the size and intensity of the burn. Many reports suggest that fire exclusion policies of the past half...

The model was developed from numerical and analytical solutions of the diffusion forms of the mass continuity equation and the first law of thermodynamics. Analytical solutions provided a functional framework to evaluate nonlinear interactions obtained...

Several fire retardants in current use were dropped from the Canadair CL-215 to determine drop height effects and for evaluation of the tank and gating system. This was accomplished through the quantification and analysis of the characteristics of the...

Describes an algorithm for separating fuel depth data into distinctive groups of measurements. The algorithm is justified heuristically, through its mathematical similarity to the "tuner" of a radio receiver. Test data generated artificially...

A report is hereby given to the results of an originally seemingly inconspicuous burn in a simple simulated urban street arrangement which is inductive to probable gross vortex formation. These results reveal in vivid details a series of most unusual...

Earlier models of fire plumes based on simple entrainment laws and neglecting dynamic pressure have failed to produce the relatively shallow inflow over the fire perimeter known as fire wind. This inflow is of prime importance in fire modelling as it...

[Excerpted from text] In 1949, 32 men died as a direct result of forest fires on national forest, State, and private lands. Most of them lost their lives because of extreme fire conditions which resulted in blow-ups. These comments will be confined to...

[Excerpted from text] Forest fires are known to behave in a variety of ways, sometimes in quite unexpected ways. Prompt suppression requires that the fire boss, in estimating the probabilities of control within the allowable period, consider factors...

Sections 111 and 112 of the Clean Air Act relative to the control of particulates are evaluated. Section 111 provides the promulgation of standards for hazardous pollutants which reflect the best systems of emission reduction. Section 112 defines...
