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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

'Fuel moistures are among the most important environmental factors required in fire danger rating evaluations. Direct observations of fuel moisture such as with fuel sticks or other analog devices are desirable for evaluation of the current fire...

Fuel moisture inputs into fire-danger rating or fire behavior models are generally related to fuel classes. To account for as many fuels as possible and still keep the number of inputs to a minimum, we have adopted the procedure of adjusting the fine...

Procedures for calculating the moisture contents of 1- and 10-hour timelag fuels have been developed based on theoretical calculations of the rate of moisture transport in wood. The 1 -hour timelag calculation is superior to fine fuel moisture...

Numerical simulation of dead fuel behavior under different climatological regimes has quantified three universal characteristics of fuels: (1) response of the fuel to climatological moisture-induced stress; (2) response of the outer layers of the fuel...
