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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Sructural changes in lignocellulosic biomass heated under conitions comparable to those encountered in several types of natural or planned burnings have been studied by solid-state 13C- and 15N-CPMAS NMR spectroscopy of 15N-MNR spectra of biomass...

Large, free-burning fires do not burn steadily. As most experienced fire personnel know, fire behavior varies significantly with time. It frequently can be described as pulsating. This pulsing is caused by a process called layer-replacement. As the...

Dimensional analysis has potential to help explain and predict physical phenomena, but has been used very little in studies of wildland fire behavior. By combining variables into dimensionless groups, the number of variables to be handled and the...

Burning rates of Douglas fir wood were measured using crosspiled sticks 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, and 1 in. (0.64, 1.27, 1.90, and 2.54 cm) in cross-sectional dimensions. Burning was 1.4 to 4.2 times as fast with the whirlwind as without.
