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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Recent attempts to model the flow in very hot fire plumes where radiative transport of heat may significantly modify both the dynamics of the flow and the processes of combustion have met with only partial success. This paper gives an account of a...

A combined theoretical and experimental study has been performed of the behaviour of firebrands in a turbulent, swirling natural convection plume. For the theoretical treatment, firebrands were idealized as spheres of constant density, the burning rate...

From the Summary: 'I have discussed the reaction and behavior of animals to fire, smoke and the resulting burnt ground along four general lines: (1) Avoidance response to fire and smoke; (2) Animals attracted to fire and smoke; (3) Animals...
