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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Charcoal deposits collected from lake sediment in Noatak and the Seward Peninsula were used to quantify fire return intervals in tundra ecosystems and examine the relationships between fire, vegetation, and climate.

In general, all climate prediction models are projecting continued increases in seasonal temperatures. Precipitation is also predicted to increase, though the impact on Alaska seems relatively minor. Alaska will most likely experience a drier...

We reconstructed fire history in one of the most flammable tundra ecosystems in Alaska, the Noatak River watershed, and interpreted records in the context of local vegetation change and regional climate. We also developed models linking monthly weather...

The ALFRESCO model has been utilized to project a landscape level shift to a largely deciduous dominated vegetation type, given current climate trends of increased warming and drying. This research presentation was presented to the JFSP Board September...
