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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Fire occurs at various intervals in differnet vegetation types. Intervals between fires are longer in warm, dry sites where small amount of fuel limits fire spread and in cool, wet sites where burning conditions are limiting despite the large amount 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...

Prescribed burning is increasingly being used under standing timber for site preparation and fuels management. Managers need guidelines for determining species and individual tree characteristics that are potentially capable of incurring minimal injury...

An experimental model is described for simulating the dynamics of the initial phase of a forest fire in a conifer stand with a wind blowing persistently in the same direction. It is shown that the characteristic burns on the bark at the base of the...

A speculative, phenomenological model is formulated for the time-varying intensity and spread rate of a free-burning fire under the influence of nonsteady wind. The model is linearized by approximations and explicit solutions derived for the amplitude...

From the book jacket...'From prehistory to the present-day conservation movement, Stephen J. Pyne's narrative explores the efforts of sucessive American cultures to master this forbidding kind of fire and to use it to shape the landscape. He...

The basic thermodynamical processes leading to the formation of droplets in the central part of the Nolan-Pollak counter are analyzed in some detail. The comparison of the UMR-Absolute Aitken Nuclei counter with Nolan-Pollak, General Electric and...

In this paper we re-examine the problem of optimal forest fire suppression which was previously studied by Parks. The growth of the fire is modelled by a deterministic differential equation in which the level of the suppression forces appears as a...

'Statewide averages of temperature and precipitation, from January l895 to April 1981, were intepolated to a grid and Palmer Drought Severity Indices (PDSI) calculated for each of the grid points. Principal component (PC) analysis was performed on...

'...With the aid of modern laboratory techniques it is possible to detect not only the end products of combustion proccsses but also many substances that appear transiently in the course of burning. As a result fire has come to be understood...
