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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.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 USDA Forest Service is implementing a new planning rule and starting to revise forest plans for many of the 155 National Forests. In forests that historically had frequent fire regimes, the scale of current fuels reduction treatments has often been...

Each year, wildland fires threaten structures and occupants of the wildland urban interface (WUI). Currently, wildfire ignition estimates largely exclude ignitions originating within municipal jurisdictions, which contain the majority of the US...

From the text ... '..., in today's world with imcreasing populations, and more people living in the wildland urban interface, prescribed burn practitioners must put more emphasis on smoke management. If we don't manage our smoke and the...

Firebrand transport is studied for disc and cylindrical firebrands by modelling their trajectories with a coupled-physics fire model, HIGRAD/FIRETEC. Through HIGRAD/FIRETEC simulations, the size of possible firebrands and travelled distances are...

'Smokey Bear, America's 'forest fire preventin' bear' for fifty years, has taken a lot of undeserved heat lately. Wildland fire management professionals--especially fire prevention professionals--must understand that heat and...

Mass fires are being investigated through a series of large-scale test fires. Preliminary results indicate: (a) air flow patterns that create eddies can result in fire vortices when fires is present; (b) the lower part of the convection column consists...

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...
