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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Variations of fuel moisture and related parameters attributable to degree of slope were studied by establishing fire weather stations on six land surfaces of the same elevation and aspect but varying from 0 to 62 per cent in steepness. Mean maximum...

A study of the effects of exposure (aspect and slope angle) and natural shade on the moisture content of Douglas fir logging slash indicates that, throughout most of the fire season, such effects are not great enough to be of practical significance in...

At least 600 papers were published during 1956 which deal with combustion, less than half of which could reasonably be reviewed within the allotted space. Since an arbitrary selection was necessary, the important subject of detonation and shock waves...

An 80-foot-square plot in a red pine plantation was burned at extreme fire danger as part of a study of fire behavior and effect. When the wind reversed its direction, the original slow-moving back-fire changed within a few minutes to a fast-spreading...
