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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Over the past decades, there has been an increasing interest in the development of forest management approaches that are based on an understanding of historical natural disturbance dynamics. The rationale for such an approach is that management to...

Fires play an important role in Canadian forests and are largely influenced by the weather. Any changes in future climate may lead to dramatic changes in future fire activity. We examined what changes in climate might occur due to increased levels of...

Climate change could increase fire weather severity in the western portion of Canada's boreal forest. In this study, we evaluate how climate change could affect future landscape-level fire behavior potential. The study area extends over 135,000...

Forest fires are a common disturbance within the boreal ecosystem of the Mackenzie Basin during the warm season. These fires threaten human life, property, and valuable commercial resources, and pose the greatest danger for fire managers. Fire is the...

A classification of spatial simulation models of fire and vegetation dynamics (landscape fire succession models or LFSMs) is presented. The classification was developed to provide a foundation for comparing models and to help identify the appropriate...
