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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.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 objective of this study was to compare juvenile (0-12 years) height growth pattern of dominant mature trees from two virgin black spruce (Picea mariana (Mill.) BSP) forests established during the 19th century (1870) to that of young dominant black...

To systematically explain relations between light hydrocarbons, CO, and CO2 concentrations/emissions of biomass burning, we measured concentrations/emissions of carbon gases -- CO, C02, light hydrocarbons (CH4, C2H6, C2H4, C2H2, C3H8, C3H6, n-C4H10, i-...

We argue that sequestering of carbon waste is inherently more efficient and will probably cost less than using the carbon for biomass burning. The ratio of carbon emitted per unit of primary energy released through combustion, C/E, favors sequestration...

Lightning is thought to represent an important source of tropospheric reactive nitrogen species NOx (NO + NO2), but estimates of global production of NOx by lightning vary considerably. We evaluate the production of NOx by lightning using a global...

To test the assumption that forest harvesting can maintain wildlife through emulating natural disturbance, we compared small mammal abundance between seven post-fire and nine clearcut plots representing three ages since disturbance (4, 14 and 27 years...
