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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

From the Summary: 'To meet ever-increasing energy demands in the United States, greater utilization of our coal resources is required. However, coal combustion produces oxides of nitrogen (NOx) which present a health hazard. The main source of...

From the summary ... 'This paper describes a simple model which can be used to investigate the transport of water vapour by thermal plumes in the atmosphere. For an approximate treatment of these plumes, it is assumed (as in a previous paper) that...

The instantaneous temperature fluctuations in a turbulent stoichiometric methane-air flame were measured with an iridium hot-wire. Near the flame front, high amplitude narrow temperature "spikes” were observed and their probability distribution...

From the Summary and Conclusions ... 'Forest succession in the Northern Rocky Mountains is not an autogenic process in which initial seral plants modify the site to their own exclusion and permit the establishment of interseral and eventually...

The principle of operation of a wideband crossed loop magnetic-field direction finder is studied by comparing the bearing determined from the NS and EW magnetic fields at various times up to 155 mu-s after return stroke initiation with the TV-...
