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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.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 heat transfer rate to forest fuels ahead of a flaming fire front is highly variable over the interval of time required to preheat the fuels. An analytical function was derived which permitted inclusion of this varying transfer rate in the...

An inconsistency arises in Rothermel's fire spread model when there are two or more categories. If a fuel load is split into identical classes in two separate categories, the reaction intensity is less than if the load is contained in a single...
