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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

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...

As part of the development of a model for predicting fuel loading reductions by and intensity histories of fires burning in large woody natural fuels, it was necessary to develop separate models for the processes of ignition and rate of burning of...

A graph has been constructed for determining one of five possible head fire intensity classes as well as the general type of fire (i.e., surface,intermittent crown or continuous crown) for Canadian Forest Fire Behavior Prediction System Fuel Type C-2 F...

Surface fire intensity (kilowatts per metre) and crown fire initiation were predicted using Rothermel's 1972 and Van Wagner's 1977 fire models with fuel data from 47 upland subalpine conifer stands (comprising Pinus contorta var. latifolia,...

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...

Climate projections for the 21st century indicate that there could be a pronounced warming and permafrost degradation in the Arctic and sub-Arctic regions. Climate warming is likely to cause permafrost thawing with subsequent effects on surface albedo...
