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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

A stirred water calorimeter measured the total downward heat load beneath a simulated smoldering organic soil of peat moss. Moisture and inorganic ratios (fraction of water and inorganic contents relative to organic dry mass) of the peat moss ranged...

Prescribed fire requires a greater understanding of the fire behavior of organic soils; will they ignite and if they do how much heat will be transferred into the ground? The former of these concerns is the subject of this study: ignition results in...

An integrated study to define fire relationships in wetland soils is described The objectives are to define the limits to combustion (ignition and burnout), model heat and vapor transport, and predict fire effects in organic soils. The goal is to...

Surface fires in wetland ecosystems frequently ignite smoldering ground fires. Ground fires often create and maintain open, shallow marshes that contribute to ecosystem diversity. Fire exclusion, drainage, deforestation, and other human activities have...

An experimental and theoretical examination of the mass burning and evaporation-rate structure of a bed of fine solid-fuel elements is made for several cases of quasi-steady firespread waves propagating along and into the surface of the bed. Several...

A new method of measuring heat flux from smoldering combustion is introduced. Currently available methods lack the accuracy of measuring the true heat flux. This is because of either the unavailability of required physical properties of the...
