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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Convection and downbursts are connected meteorological phenomena with the potential to affect fire behavior and thereby alter the evolution of a wildland fire. Meteorological phenomena related to convection and down-bursts are often discussed in the...

The FASMEE FON requests proposals from individuals seeking to serve as discipline leads for the development of the FASMEE study plan. We propose to serve as co-discipline leads for plume development and meteorology for this endeavor. The proposal...

The radiation field - resolved in time and space and encompassing an entire burn unit - and the convective field that can be derived from it are essential kinds of evaluation data for fire models and input data for smoke models. The primary challenge...

Recent discussions of the Haines Index have suggested that the relationship between the mixed layer and the layer used to calculate the Haines Index is important. The relationship influences how the Index layer interacts with the surface in terms of...

Since the Haines Index (HI) was introduced in 1988, it has been used as a tool to aid fire managers with their decision-making in assessing fire risk. The HI is a lower atmospheric severity index for wildfire severity (growth potential) based upon...
