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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Bryophytes are dominant components of boreal forest understories and play a large role in regulating soil microclimate and nutrient cycling. Therefore, shifts in bryophyte communities have the potential to affect boreal forests’ ecosystem processes. We...

Generalised statements about the state of fire science are often used to provide a simplified context for new work. This paper explores the validity of five frequently repeated statements regarding empirical and physical models for predicting wildland...

Excpert: "A preliminary study of the issue of managing fuels on the boreal fire landscape suggests that it's just as "daunting" a task in the boreal forest as it is in dry forest type ecosystems of southern British Columbia. However...

An empirical relationship was derived between the ratio of total length to maximum width or breadth (L/B) of wind-driven forest fires on level terrain originating from a point source ignition and the international standard 10-m open wind (W). The...

Our study analyzed eleven RADARSAT-1 images acquired over burned and unburned boreal forests in June 2000 in order to assess their potential to map fire danger variables, like the CFFDRS FWI codes and indices. RADARSAT-1 can acquire images almost daily...
