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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Fighting large wildland fires is often compared to a military operation. Each involves such things as: an organization with a general at the head, massive movements of personnel and equipment; tactical aerial support, and long periods of combat and...

We begin our study of wildland fire with the basic principles and mechanisms of the combustion process-fire fundamentals. In the next chapter we look at wildland fire as an event. Fire behavior is what a fire does, the dynamics of the fire event. In...

An experimental and analytical study of heat and mass transfer in wooden dowels during a simulated fire is presented in this paper. The goal of this study is to understand the processes of heat and mass transfer in wood during wildland fires. A...

Ecosystems are envisioned as integrated, complex systems with both living and non-living components, that are linked through processes of energy flow and nutrient cycling (Bowen, 1971; Ricklefs, 1979). The ecosystem approach seeks to describe the...

After nearly a century of avid fire suppression, land managers are substantially increasing prescribed burning to meet ecosystem management objectives. As scientists and managers we need to accurately quantify the capacity of airsheds to assimilate...

While natural areas are generally perceived as desirable havens by city dwellers, the potential danger of fire is not always fully appreciated. People may correctly perceive the risk, but are unwilling to compromise their version of natural and...

A survey was conducted of predictive models for heat and mass transport within soils exposed to the heating rates and temperature regimes under wildland fires. Two models trace their ancestry to soil science, and other models for heat and mass...

The Canadian Forest Fire Behavior Prediction (FBP) System provides a systematic method of assessing fire behavior. The FBP System has 14 primary inputs that can be divided into 5 general categories: fuels, weather, topography, foliar moisture content,...
