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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

From the Conclusion: 'The study of secondary productivity in grassland ecosystems is potentially of use in both theoretical and applied ecology. Energy flow studies, far from being complete or obsolete, are really just beginining. We have...

In flames produced by freely burning fuel, buoyancy may play an important role in determining the speed of the gases in the flame zone and hence the flame height. Measurements have been made of the height of flames from burning cribs of wood on a...

This paper contains some theoretical speculations on the possible heating effect of flame radiation in front of forest fires. Flame variables used are rate of advance, length, angle of tilt and radiant intensity. Taking a simplified case, an expression...

'The burning of logging slash has been a common practice in the Pacific Northwest ever since the introduction of clear-cut logging. In those days of low stumpage and log values no one needed to be too careful of the amount of damage done and the...
