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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Objectives of this study were to test existing prediction equations for duff depth reduction, percentage of duff consumed, and mineral soil exposure to determine the limits of their applicability, and to develop if possible broadly based prediction...

The Doppler lidar of NOAA/ERL's Wave Propagation Laboratory (WPL) observed a prescribed forest fire that was ignited in the township of Battersby, Ontario, Canada, on 12 August 1988. During the first hour of the fire the lidar saw the smoke column...

We present estimates of nitrogen oxide (NOx) emission from worldwide biomass burning totaling ~13 Tg N yr-1 on a 1 degree longitude by 1 degree latitude grid. Roughly 80 percent of these emissions occur in the zone from 25N to 25 degrees S. The...

Electric field measurements, combined with lightning location data, demonstrate that the plume clouds from large fires can be charged and can generate lightning discharges. The results of measurements made on a prescribed burn show that the charge...

A one-dimensional plume model was developed for use by fire-weather forecasters and others who want a small computer platform tool for vertical parcel method motions with respect to an ambient real sounding. The model includes cloud microphysics...

The OCTET modeling system has been designed to simulate the atmospheric dynamics, microphysics and scavenging above hypothetical large city fires with energy release rates on the order of 10-100kW/m2 over areas of tens to hundreds of square kilometers...

Recently, Fosberg and Fujioka (1987) emphasized the potential importance that accurate long-range weather forecasts would have on national and regional land and fire management. In particular, they described a national research plan to integrate...

Representative soundings from 74 major wildland fires in the United States were analyzed to determine if characteristic temperature, moisture, and wind patterns were discernable prior to the occurrence of extreme fire behavior. In a previous study, OO...
