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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.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 text (p.15) ... 'I promised I would try to define silviculture, but maybe we need reminding again that 'because of the broad differences in climate, physiography, forest vegetation, method of past treatment, natural and introduced...

The Mann Gulch fire, which overran 16 firefighters in 1949, is analyzed to show its probable movement with respect to the crew. The firefighters were smoke-jumpers who had parachuted near the fire on August 5, 1949. While they were moving to a safer...

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...

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...

Changing climate and land use appear to importantly affect the biosphere by way of impacts on fire regimes. Feedback effects on climate and air quality are likely through emissions of trace gases, aerosols, and particulates that affect radiation...

To determine whether there are persistent differences in fire frequency in Picea glauca and Pinus banksiana forests, we examine dendrochronological and palynological records of fire history. The time since the last fire at 165 stands located in Wood...

1. A fire of unusually great severity (deep burning) burned across the forest-tundra near Inuvik, Northwest Territories from August 8 to 18, 1968. 2. Burned-unburned paired study sites around the fire perimeter, which had been established in both...

1 The postglacial history of jack pine (Pinus banksiana Lamb.) at its northernmost distribution limit in the upper boreal forest, along the Grande Riviere de la Baleine (northern Quebec), was reconstructed by using radiocarbon-dated conifer...

1. Pollen analysis of sediment cores from the four zones that comprise the forest-tundra transition in northern Quebec provide a history of the vegetation that can be compared with extensive macrofossil data from the region. Basal radiocarbon dates...

In this note we demonstrate that the Buckney and Morrison (1992) data subsets are located on different geomorphological units and different pre-mining plant communities with different fire histories. The conclusions that they have drawn from their data...
