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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

The smoldering combustion of natural organic layers such as peatlands leads to the largest and most persistent wildland fires on the Earth. The atmospheric oxygen concentration (mass fraction of oxygen: ) significantly influences the smoldering...

Fires play an important role in the terrestrial biosphere carbon cycle, not only through direct carbon release but also contributing to a potential long‐term storage as pyrogenic carbon (PyC). PyC is formed through fires, and, because it may resist...

The burning of tropical rainforests in the Southeast Asia emits considerable particulate matter (PM), which has significant effects on air quality and human health. Lacking of reliable local EFPM for rainforest burning in the Southeast Asia is one of...

Organic aerosols (OAs) in the atmosphere affect Earth's energy budget by not only scattering but also absorbing solar radiation due to the presence of the so-called 'brown carbon' (BrC) component. However, the absorptivities of OAs are...

In the U.S. forest products industry, wildfire is one of the leading causes of damage and economic losses. While individual wildfire behavior is well studied, new literature is emerging on broad-scale (e.g., county-level) wildfire risks. Our paper...

Large woody debris (LWD) is an important component in the biogeochemistry cycle of carbon and nutrients in forested stream ecosystems. In-stream LWD volume, biomass and carbon pool were investigated in 19 forested streams in the south central interior...
