This powerpoint presentation is a consortium overview for the first session of the 2nd Annual Alaska Fire Science Consortium Workshop held in Fairbanks, Alaska.
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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.
The Alaska Consortium is part of a national effort to improve technology transfer between management and researchers. The goals of the Alaska Consortium are to coordinate current science delivery efforts, create a formal outreach mechanism for two-way...
The 2009 survey results were summarized and future action items were identified. The 2010 Technology Transfer Survey in now available.
This brainstorming session addressed several questions including: a) How can scientists help support management decisions? b) How can we integrate this information into the field? c) Where are the missing links in AK fire science information? d) How...
