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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Results and analysis of an experimental burning study on the fire behavior in boreal mixedwood slash in the northern Ontario's Clay Belt Region are presented. Horizontal discontinuity in this fuel type makes fire spread difficult when the fire...

From the text: 'The purpose of this Report is to present the heats of combustion of some forest fuels at Petawawa, and to discuss the reductions necessary to arrive at a practical heat yield suitable for calculating a fire's energy output...

Slash components and organic matter from alpine fir, Lodgepole pine, and white spruce stands and clearcuts were ovendried to determine elapsed drying time. Weighings at specific intervals showed that each fuel component dried exponentially and that the...
