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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

What factors may influence new fires burning into or being slowed by previous fire scars? How long can we consider fire scars a fuel barrier? More and more area in Alaska seems to be burning in close succession, or "repeat burns."

Fire effects monitoring officers report of the experimental prescribed burn in fuel treatments in interior Alaska black spruce. See also the project page at Alaska Fire Science Consortium website:...

Satellite-derived spectral indices such as the relativized burn ratio (RBR) allow fire severity maps to be produced in a relatively straightforward manner across multiple fires and broad spatial extents. These indices often have strong relationships...

The Fuel Model Guide to Alaska Vegetation (Cella et al. 2008) was developed by an interagency team of fire practitioners and vegetation mappers/specialists in 2008. It crosswalked vegetation types described in the Alaska Vegetation Classification (...

For many years, firefighters in Alaska have been using sprinkler treatments for point protection without fully knowing the limits of effectiveness. Our results in feathermoss fuel beds in lowland spruce forests indicate that bringing the top 5 inches...

Landscape fires can produce large quantities of smoke that degrade air quality in both remote and urban communities. Smoke from these fires is a complex mixture of fine particulate matter and gases, exposure to which is associated with increased...

Tundra fires have important ecological impacts on vegetation, wildlife, permafrost, and carbon cycling, but the pattern and controls of historic tundra fire regimes are poorly understood. We use sediment records from four lakes to develop a 2000-yr...

Communities impacted by fine-particle air pollution (particles with an aerodynamic diameter less than 2.5 mm; PM2.5) from forest fires and residential wood burning require effective, evidence-based exposure-reduction strategies. Public health...
