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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.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...'The explanation often given for the large wildfires that have burned each year in North America in the last two decades is that fire suppression after the 1950s produced a buildup of fuel and changed the landscape-age mosaic (e.g...

This chapter attempts to describe a fairly recent and major advance in the modeling of wildfires: the coupling of a cloud-resolving numerical prediction model with a simple fire-spread and wildfire behavior model, so that the atmosphere-fire is treated...

Prescribed burns are increasingly being used in ecological restoration and vegetation management. Despite the accumulation of scientific information on fire behavior and fire effects, however, in many cases fires are prescribed without consideration of...

Lightning ignition of wildland fuels plays a major role in the maintenance and evolution of ecosystems. Lightning not only ignites fire but also weakens trees, facilitating insect and disease attack, causes physical damage, and kills trees and groups...

From preface: 'Since the 1950s, the body of literature on fire behavior has been growing in journals of engineering, geophysics, meteorology, etc. Foresters and ecologists have not used much of this literature on the physical aspects of fire...
