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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Wildland fire managers and planners rely heavily on information that describes environmental and sociological factors. Complex and dynamic interactions among these factors are commonplace, but difficult to model and portray in a useable and...

The expanding use of prescribed fire to achieve North American land management objectives has led, in recent years, to the increased use of helicopter-ignition, large-scale controlled burns. These mass-ignition convection burns often generate extremely...

A scheme is presented for dealing with the full range of fire behavior in conifer forests. It is based on empirical data from fires in Canadian forests plus a theory to describe the physical conditions for the transition from surface to crown fire. In...

A methodology for the estimation of ignition times on solid materials is presented. It is based on the observation that the time to ignition is proportional to the squared time integral of the incident heat flux. This relationship can be readily...

The last 15 years have seen the development of wildland and wildland-urban interface (WUI) fire behavior models that make use of modern numerical methods in atmospheric and combustion physics. Currently, these approaches are too computationally...

This project has explored the hypothesis that public fire suppression in fire‐prone areas acts as a subsidy to landowners, incentivizing conversion of land to residential and commercial development. Landowners do not bear the full cost of their choice...

States in the humid southeastern US (ex. Louisiana, South Carolina) are investigating or already implementing a methodology developed in the arid intermountain west where particulate matter with aerodynamic diameter less than or equal to 2.5...

Managers, regulators, and others often need information on the emissions from wildland fire and their expected smoke impacts. In order to create this information, combinations of models are utilized. The modeling steps follow a logical progression from...
