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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Numerical simulation of dead fuel behavior under different climatological regimes has quantified three universal characteristics of fuels: (1) response of the fuel to climatological moisture-induced stress; (2) response of the outer layers of the fuel...

[from the text] The long-time role of fire in the forests of eastern Canada is masked, I believe, by the history of Canadian forest management in the exploitive years since 1920. There is now more forest land occupied by Industry -- mainly the Pulp and...
