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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Bulk densities of surface fuels divided into three strata were determined for dominant fuel groups to aid in describing compactness and horizontal continuity for fire behavior modeling. Dominant fuel groups were defined as horizontally distributed...

Prescribed burning is extensively used in wildlife, forest, and range management, and in maintaining biotic diversity. Burning tends to increase food and/or favourable habitat conditions for many upland game and waterfowl species. Prescribed burning in...

The mixedwood forest is defined as a successional mosaic of stratified mixed stands of disturbance (mainly wildfire) origin. The effect of long-term exclusion of fire is discussed. A plea is made for a 'let-burn' policy in parks and improved...

Based on the hypothesis that the spatial distribution on the ground of fire retardant materials, dropped from fixed-wing aircraft, must be a result of the physical properties of the retardant, a series of experiments has been run to measure the...

A guidebook has been developed to assist the fire managers and planners in estimating actual economic costs, losses, and benefits resulting from fire management activities. This guidebook was developed and tested on 12 National Forests during the 1977-...
