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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

To study the vegetation affected by fires and to create databases useful for fire behavior prediction, three methodological approaches are used: (1) selective, (2) standard, and (3) individual-standard. The selective method consists of empirically...

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: In the spring of 2022, wildfires caused by escaped prescribed fires compelled Chief Randy Moore of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service to call for a 90-day pause in the agency’s prescribed fire program pending a...

Coupled atmosphere-fire modeling is recognized as a relevant approach for the representation of the interaction between a wildland fire and local meteorology at landscape scales. The atmospheric model component used in the coupled system is based on...

Background: Adverse effects of wildfires can be mitigated within fuel treatments, but empirical evidence of their effectiveness across large areas is needed to guide design and implementation at the landscape level. We conducted a systematic literature...

Midlatitude stationary waves are relatively persistent large-scale longitudinal variations in atmospheric circulation. Although recent case studies have suggested a close connection between stationary waves and extreme weather events, little is known...

In firebrand deposition scenarios, there are a few possible outcomes: no ignition, smoldering, and flaming ignition. The criteria for determining smoldering or flaming ignition is generally qualitative in nature. Experiments were conducted to determine...

Aim: Each year, wild and managed fires burn roughly 4 million km2 [~400 million hectares (Mha)] of savanna, forest, grassland and agricultural ecosystems. Land use and climate change have altered fire regimes throughout the world, with a trend toward...

Several cross-sectional studies recognize that conductive climatic conditions, including grave weather conditions favorable for ignition, larger burned areas, increasing fuel load and longer fire season, can lead to extreme events and enable fires to...
