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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Firebrand transport is studied for disc and cylindrical firebrands by modelling their trajectories with a coupled-physics fire model, HIGRAD/FIRETEC. Through HIGRAD/FIRETEC simulations, the size of possible firebrands and travelled distances are...

This file memo documents the authors' initial thoughts on a broad scale fire danger classification scheme for Alaska back in 1995 and subsequently followed up by some additional comments in 2012.

Forest harvest scheduling has been modeled using deterministic and stochastic programming models. Past models seldom address explicit spatial forest management concerns under the influence of natural disturbances. In this research study, we employ...

Prescribed burning for fuel reduction is a major strategy for reducing the risk from unplanned fire. Although there are theoretical studies suggesting that prescribed fire has a strong negative influence on the subsequent area of unplanned fire (so-...

This symposium brings together a broad community of wildland fire managers, practitioners, researchers, academics, policy makers, and students from around the world to provide the opportunity to share research and ideas on the economics, planning, and...

Evaluating the risks of wildfire relative to the valuable resources found in any managed landscape requires an interdisciplinary approach. Researchers at the Rocky Mountain Research Station and Western Wildland Threat Assessment Center developed such a...

United States Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) uses the METAFIRE Severity Index to justify fire emergency funding requests. In addition, many fire managers use it successfully to support applications for those very funds. The METAFIRE...

Human land use practices, altered climates, and shifting forest and fire management policies have increased the frequency of large wildfires several-fold. Mitigation of potential fire behaviour and fire severity have increasingly been attempted through...

We propose development of a new methodology that can be used by forest and fire managers and planners to consider the potential effects of all aspects of fire management (i.e., fuels reduction to post-fire restoration) on native stream fishes and their...
