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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Knowing the amount of biomass and other fuel characteristics across a landscape is becoming increasingly important to fire managers as new fuel and fire management decision support systems come on line, Often, few fuel characteristic data are available...

Tundra fires were once very rare on Alaska's North Slope, but are now becoming more frequent, probably as a result of climate change. Fire-management need to be highly adaptable during this time of rapid change; however, information concerning the...

After many years of research examining the ignition of wood and other cellulosic fuels, it is still unclear which modes of heat transfer will result in successful ignition of live wildland fuel particles. Thermal radiation can cause a fuel particle to...
