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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

A scheme is presented for dealing with the full range of fire behavior in conifer forests. It is based on empirical data from fires in Canadian forests plus a theory to describe the physical conditions for the transition from surface to crown fire. In...

Residential encroachment into wildland areas places an additional burden on fire management activities. Prevention programs, fuel management efforts, and suppression strategies, previously employed in wildland areas, require modification for protection...

This chapter reviews basis for some fundamental techniques, principles, and practices of dendroecology. Dendroecology refers to applications of dendrochronological techniques to problems in ecology. The important ecological problems for which...

Some basic fire behavior phenomena are described in terms of analytical solutions to simple physical models for the heating of unburned fuel to ignition temperature by radiation from the combustion region. The most interesting result is a model for the...

Moisture contents of organic forest-floor materials were studied by strata on a clear-cut jack pine (Pinus banksiana Lamb.) site in relation to slash distribution and changes in both duff moisture code and fine fuel moisture code, the two weather-based...

Moisture contents of organic forest-floor materials were studied by strata in a semi-mature jack pine (Pinus banksiana Lamb.) stand in relation to their within-stand locations and changes in both duff moisture code and fine fuel moisture code, the two...

[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...

From the introduction: The purpose of the Symposium on Wildland Fire 2000 was to examine the 'possible, preferred, and probable status of wildland fire management and research in the year 2000 and beyond' (David and Martin 1987). A half-day...
