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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

As the initial step in a study of forest fire cycles in the boreal forest of northwestern Ontario, four burned areas of different ages were briefly examined. This Report describes the present condition of the areas visited in terms of both forest cover...

'The control aspects of fire management from the hand raked fireline to the maintained firebreak can produce form, line, color & texture contrasts. Just as these contrasts can produce undesirable results, they can be used productively. It...

From the text: 'In my opinion, professional foresters should be working much harder to get the facts across on prescribed burning because if we don't I feel forest management could suffer from restrictive rules or laws, both at the State and...

Fire spread in wildland fuels is modeled as the steady, longitudinal propagation of an isothermal surface at ignition temperature by the process of radiation transport through a uniform layer of randomly-distributed, thermally-thin, radiometrically-...

Studies of anticipated effects of global warming tend to concentrate on the physiological limits of individual organisms, and imputed modifications to biome distributions expresed as climax ecosystems. Changes in distributions of individual species and...

We correct the variance for the rate of spread of a fire through a non-homogeneous fuel as described in Catchpole et al. (1989, Ecol. Modelling, 48: 101-112). The spatial dependence of the fuel types can greatly influence this variance; a phenomenon...

The scales of spatial patterns of the vascular understorey were examined during postfire succession in the taiga of southeastern Manitoba. Patterns of individual species from analogous burned (5 years old) and old-growth (>90 years old) communities...

During late 1982 and early 1983 wild fires swept through more than 3.5 Mha in the lowlands of East Kalimantan, Indonesia. The immediate causes of the conflagration were a combination of severe drought, destructive logging practices, and slash and burn...
