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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

This report provides interim fuel consumption guidelines for five common slash fuel complexes found in Ontario. Slash fuel consumption and depth of burn were found to be related to preburn fuel. loadings, and to fire weather as expressed by the Buildup...

On rich productive mixedwood cutover sites in western Newfoundland, hardwood reproduction competes strongly with regenerating softwood seedlings, chiefly of balsam fir. An experiment was established to compare several chemical methods and one...

Burning experiments conducted in the labortory indicated a 25-64 per cent loss of nitrogen from the forest floor at temperatures of 300-700ºC. Burning increased the nitrogen concentration of the residual material, but the total amount of nitrogen...

From tabulated frequency distributions of fire danger indexes for a nationwide network of 89 stations, the probabilities of four types of fire behavior ranging from 'fire out' to 'critical' were calculated for each month and are...

From the text 'Shortleaf pine occurs with loblolly pine throughout most of the upper Coastal Plain of the mid-South and Southeast. It is found infrequently with other southern pines where these are predominant in the lower Coastal Plain, and it...

From the text...'In factorial experiments, the effect of two or more factors, each tested at two or more levels, is tested simultaneously. A factorial experiment with n factors and p levels is denoted as a pn factorial. The term factorial refers...

A series of three 4—acre plots in a jack pine cut over were burned at three degrees of fire hazard. The weather, fire behaviour, and effects are reported, and a general conclusion drawn by others was confirmed: slash hazard is reduced by any running...

The effects of fall clipping or burning on the subsequent morphology of bluebunch wheatgrass were studied in both the big sagebrush-bluebruch wheatgrass and Douglas fir-bluebunch wheatgrass communities. Observations were made to the 2nd year after...

This paper describes a finite difference experiment to simulate the transient development of the convection column above a strip of uniform high temperature source in a stratified uniform cross flow atmosphere. The k--e model of turbulence is used and...
