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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Wildfires are a major driver of ecosystem development and contributor to carbon emissions in boreal forests. We analyzed the contribution of fires of different fire size classes to the total burned area and suggest a novel fire characteristic, the...

The first part of this report presents the results of further tests of fires in wood cribs. In one series of tests cribs of the same height and structure but with different areas, or horizontal cross-sections, were burned in still air to determine the...

The effectiveness of long-term fire retardants is related to the concentration of the active fire-inhibiting salt. Quality control at each retardant base is necessary to assure that maximum effectiveness is obtained. This note describes simple field...

Differential thermal, thermogravimetric, and derivative thermogravimetric analyses were used to study the effects of two important fire retardant chemicals-ammonium phosphate and ammonium sulfate-on the pyrolysis and combustion of cellulose. To aid in...
