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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Surveys of homeowners in three different ecosystems with varying fuels management approaches reveal that homeowners' trust in natural resource agencies is significantly associated with perceived risks and benefits and with perceived agency...

The human community impacts of wildland fire is an understudied area. This article reviews the human disaster and hazards literature in an attempt to discover lessons applicable to understanding the social impacts of fire in the residential/wildland...

I recently completed a study providing insight into critical decisions by command officers on some of California's most notorious wildfires in the wildland/urban interface (WUI). My study focused on the first several hours of response to the fires...

Canyons or ridges are associated with a large number of fatal accidents produced during forest fires all over the world. A contribution to the understanding of fire behaviour in these terrain conditions is given in this paper. The basic geometrical...

Fire spreads in a specifically spatial manner, which suggests the applicability of percolation models to the risk reduction problem. It is shown that under fairly general conditions a threshold exists below which a landscape becomes essentially...

We subjected 159 small ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Dougl. ex P. & C. Laws.) to treatments designed to test the relative importance of stem damage as a predictor of postfire mortality. The treatments consisted of a group with the basal bark...

Betula glandulosa survives over a wide range of North American fire regimes by resprouting from the rhizome. Over-winter root carbohydrate reserves are important to sprout production and growth in the following spring. Nursery and field experiments...

The aim of this article is twofold. First, it concerns the improvement of knowledge on the fundamental physical mechanisms that control the propagation of forest fires. To proceed, an experimental apparatus was designed to study, in laboratory...

This paper describes a coupled fire-atmosphere model that uses a sophisticated high-resolution non-hydrostatic numerical mesoscale model to predict the local winds which are then used as input to the prediction of fire spread. The heat and moisture...

Wildfires are a natural, reoccurring, and essential component of ecological communities worldwide. Decades of fire exclusion and altered fire regimes have had substantial ecological consequences, including increased fuel loads. Fuel loads are diverse...
