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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.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 Summary:'Some of the characteristics of areal rainfall have been examined for the purposes of assessing the extent to which a point observation is representative of whether or not an area has received rain. Only summer rainfall data were...

Results and analysis of an experimental burning study on the fire behavior in boreal mixedwood slash in the northern Ontario's Clay Belt Region are presented. Horizontal discontinuity in this fuel type makes fire spread difficult when the fire...

From the summary ... ' In summary, the results of these large scale fire tests, conducted under marginal burning conditions, were negative; but, paradoxically, I find this very heartening, for we can now be much more confident in our predictions...

A typical gas chromatogram of the volatile pyrolysis products (molecular weights less than 150) of untreated a-cellulose contains 39 peaks, however, mass spectral data indicate that at least 59 compounds are present. Since the initial pyrolysis...
