The Advanced Fire Environment Learning Unit (AFELU) will host three speakers to talk about Predictive Services comparison tools (Robert Ziel, Alaska Fire Science Consortium), predicting fire behavior in Alaska (Chris Moore, Alaska Fire Service), and...
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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

What factors may influence new fires burning into or being slowed by previous fire scars? How long can we consider fire scars a fuel barrier? More and more area in Alaska seems to be burning in close succession, or "repeat burns."
Presented at 2014 Fall Alaska Fire Science Workshop.
A brief refresher of CFFDRS from the 3-day Summit, held October 28-30 in Fairbanks.
The Fire Behavior Subcommittee of the National Wildfire Coordinating Group Fire Environment Committee undertook development of this poster to provide a job aid to visually and succinctly tie the fire environment components together in one place...
Organized by the Alaska Fire Modeling and Analysis Committee. Presented by Eric Miller, Chris Moore, and Robert (Zeke) Ziel.
"Risk is defined as a measure of the probability and consequence of uncertain future events" (Thompson et al 2016). We are uncertain about many things each day, though only when that uncertainty interferes with a decision is a risk considered and...
