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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.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 motion of a strong line thermal in an unstratified atmosphere is modeled to estimate a bound for its capability to life firebrand particles. It is found that the maximum height of a viable firebrand is roughly proportional to the square root of...

The elements of a theory for the process of free spread of fire through brush are presented in terms of simple stepwise processes, which are analyzed separately but joined by their common physical parameters. The stepwise processes analyzed are: (1)...

Equations are presented by which to calculate the maximum firebrand particle lofting height from wind-driven line fires in surface fuels. Variables used are the fuel type, described as one of twelve stylized models used for fire behavior prediction,...

In this paper a mathematical description of flow into the forest edge is proposed and used as a basis for a detailed reexamination of experimental results from the scale model studies of Kawatania and Sadeh (1971). It is the intention here to use the...
