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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Advances in fire climatology have derived from recent studies of modern and paleoecological records. We convened a series of workshops and a conference session to report and review regional-scale findings, and these meetings led to the 10 papers in...

Linear programming techniques are used to optimally place fire suppression resources in a presuppression role. Travel times required to reach individual cells within a forest region (attack times) are calculated using fire behavior models and attack...

Documents the analysis of wind tunnel experiments on fire spread that produced a double ellipse concept of fire area growth. This provides ways of estimating size (area), shape (perimeter), and length to width ratio of a wind-driven wild land fire. The...
