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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

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...

Firebrands spread fire efficiently, but their occurrence is difficult to understand and predict. It is obvious that potential firebrands form and burn-up continuously in any wildland fire, just as it is apparent that there is upward motion above a fire...

This paper shows how equations that simulate fire front growth for constant slope and spatially independent and velocity can be generalized to describe fire front growth for spatially and temporally varying fuel, topography and wind velocity. The...

[from the text] Recent changes in Forest Service fire management policy make it clear that resource managers today need a great deal more information on the physical, biological, and ecological effects of fire. They will need information on fire...
