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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Fire management of grasslands is best executed based on an understanding of the fundamental properties of grassland components, structures, and environments, and the nature of fire behavior in grassland fuels. The art of controlled burning combines...

A model has been developed for predicting the number of lightning-fire ignitions in wildland fuels. The model is based on both stochastic and physical processes. Stochastic methods are used to generalize the lightning storm characteristics and site...

Predicting fire behavior in nonuniform fuel arrays is a problem requiring: 1. A method of assessing fuel nonuniformity, 2. A method of simulating fuel nonuniformity, and 3. An algorithm governing fire spread through a simulated array. Satisfying these...

Systems to enable land managers to locate, evaluate, and counter the fire threat of lightning storms are in the early stages of development. In the western U.S. and Alaska, the Bureau of Land Management has established networks of instruments that...

[From the text] The topics to be discussed today are certainly timely and deserve your attention. I feel it is significant that your working group is trying to involve landowners, managers and planners. Fire was a front page news story this summer. The...

Land use planning has truly reached a high plateau in this country. Planning is firmly entrenched and here to stay. With the population increase and therefore increased resource demands, our resource producing land base is shrinking. We must strive for...

Some of you may be like I am: a thick-skinned, hard-of-hearing traditionalist. For many years we fire fighters, fire managers, and resource managers have been bombarded, lambasted and harangued about the need to integrate fire and fire management into...
