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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

The burning characteristics of several fire-retardant plants and Southern California chaparral shrubs of recognized high flammability were compared in muffle-furnance tests at 650 C. Fresh terminal growth of Atriplex lentiformis did not burn as readily...

Some consider that Douglas-fir seedlings initially grow better on burned than on similar but unburned soil. The improved growth is attributed to an increase in available nutrients as a result of combustion and to a release from vegetative competition....

Fine-fuel moisture content tables, using dry bulb and dewpoint temperatures as entry data, have been developed for use with the National Fire-Danger Rating System in Alaska. Comparisons have been made which illustrate differences resulting from danger-...

Uncontrolled fires, sweeping over vast areas of the interior nearly every summer, place in jeopardy the future economic development of that portion of Alaska. The area involved is vast but the resources that can be used in perpetuity, even under wise...

Conventional hygrothermographs can be modified as described here to record windspeed along with temperature and relative humidity. The fire-weather record resulting from the modification has several fire management applications, as demonstrated in...

Diethyl ether and acetone were used to reduce the extractive content of aspen leaves. The leaves were burned in 0.5-ft^2 baskets and the weight loss rate was recorded. A direct relationship between extractive content and burning rate was found. This...

Fire managers require 24-hour records of temperature, relative humidity, and windspeed to use fire efficiently and effectively. When carefully calibrated and interpreted, modified hygrothermographs provide minimum instrumentation to obtain these...

A combined theoretical and experimental study has been performed of the behaviour of firebrands in a turbulent, swirling natural convection plume. For the theoretical treatment, firebrands were idealized as spheres of constant density, the burning rate...
