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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Foliar moisture content was sampled in five eastern Canadian conifers and two hardwoods during 1962-65, and seasonal trends were established. These were basically similar from year to year despite weather differences. The moisture content of new...

A fire whirl from a liquid-fuel pool (acetone) is formed at the center of a rotating screen which imparts a controlled angular momentum to the ambient air. Measurements show that outside of the core the fluid motion is that of a free vortex. A hot-wire...

In the past, the authors and their colleagues have studied the effects of wind-blown flames involving burning gases and liquid pool fires. It would seem logical to conduct a similar study with solid fuels. This the authors have done, and they report...

With the adoption of the National Fire Danger Rating System in Alaska, the entire State now has a common method of rating forest fire danger for all proctection agencies. Uniformity such as this was one of the primary reasons for the development of a...
