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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

A simple geometrical model of fire spread through arrays of vertically mounted fuel elements performs well in the absence of wind. The theory assumes that an adjacent fuel element ignites when the flame from the previous fuel element moves downward...

The response of two bunchgrass species, Festuca idahoensis and Agropyron spicatum, to fire was examined under three levels of fire severity. The fire treatment was applied with an instrument system that allowed precise control over the intensity and...

We report here the results of laboratory and computer simulations designed to supply information on soil temperatures under forest and range fires. Measurements of temperature and water content in a soil column that was heated strongly at the surface...

ANNOTATION: Often the deciding factor in the economical recovery of wood fuel is its relationship with some other objective such as stand establishment, stand improvement, or forest access. The costs and benefits arising from these related management...

ANNOTATION: In spite of this simplicity secondary transport is typically responsible for between 20 and 40% of the delivered fuel cost. To achieve a full payload within maximum allowable load dimension restrictions the material transported must have a...

The potential equilibrium response of Canadian vegetation under two doubled-CO2 climatic scenarios was investigated at three levels in the vegetation mosaic using the rule-based, Canadian Climate-Vegetation Model (CCVM) and climatic response surfaces....

A Mapped Atmosphere-Plant-Soil System (MAPSS) has been constructed for simulating the potential biosphere impacts and biosphere-atmosphere feedbacks from climatic change. The system calculates the potential vegetation type and leaf area that could be...

Major wildland/urban interface fire losses, principally residences, continue to occur. Although the problem is not new, the specific mechanisms are not well known on how structures ignite in association with wildland fires. In response to the need for...
