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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Can fire accelerate the changes in the arctic that climate is already inducing and could a single fire event trigger a threshold change in arctic vegetation communities, with far-reaching implications?  Ten years following a large and severe wildfire...

Alaska’s fire managers are well aware that most boreal burning occurs during relatively brief periods of high fire activity. This was well-illustrated in the 2015 fire season (below). There is also evidence to suggest that fires may be more severe (...

Interior Alaska (2015) and Northwest Territories (2014) recently experienced large fire seasons. Most of the burned area is from fires that ignited before July. Drought-induced early season (June) lightning ignitions were an important driver of these...
