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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.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 Byram index of fire intensity is extended from the head of a fire to include its total perimeter. Variation in intensity is plotted against different variables for an elliptical fire front; for one of these variables (the normal angle) this plot is...

[From first paragraph] Line production estimating guides are needed for initial action planning and estimating control forces required on project fires. Current methods of predicting fire behavior in these situations use fire behavior models. This...

Fire managers face two interrelated problems in deciding the most efficient use of air tankers: where best to base them, and how best to reallocate them each day in anticipation of fire occurrence. A computerized model based on a mixed integer linear...

A mathematical model for the near-surface flow of air up a sun-heated slope is derived. The model is used to produce tables and graphs for estimating "midflame" windspeeds as needed for predicting wildland fire behavior. The model applies on...

Experimental evidence from 250 test fires confirms the general formulation of Rothermel's 1972 mathematical model for predicting fire spread in wildland fuels. Numerical coefficients are reevaluated for the empirical relations governed by fuel bed...

Operational parameters for an S2F airtanker were monitored on a series of wildland fires to verify previous assumptions concerning typical flight envelopes. Results confirmed the validity of the procedure and instrumentation used in obtaining real-time...

Discusses problems associated with fire-cause data on USDA Forest Service wildfire reports, traces the historical development of wildfire-cause categories, and presents the pros and cons of retaining current wildfire-cause reporting systems or adopting...

Traces the history of USDA Forest Service fire reports, examines the most recent report, Form 5100-29, and discusses the reliability of information recorded on the 5100-29, factors influencing data accuracy, and reactions of the Ranger District...

The symposium, held at San Diego State University, provided information about the Mediterranean-type ecosystems found throughout the world. In the papers, and in brief summaries of poster displays, both researchers and managers addressed concerns...
