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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

This Report is a technical comparison of the American and Canadian systems of forest fire danger rating. It deals with the three fuel moisture indicators in each system, as well as the indexes of spread and energy release or buildup. The final...

Changing the display format is the least painful way for the fire manager to reduce the cost of AFFIRMS. Some ways to cut costs: •Suppress the headings only if 7 more than three headings can be saved •Pick the shortest display consistent with your...

Spontaneous and piloted ignition of ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Laws.) needles were investigated in an isothermal atmosphere. Four levels of sample moisture content were tested and minimum heat flux intensities required to produce ignition, times...

This paper examines two sets of decision rules for planning-the economic benefit-cost analysis and the sociological approach-and points the way toward a useful integration. A synthesis provides the means, both conceptual and practical, to aid the...

The specification of moisture contents in forest fuels is an integral part of any workable fire-danger rating system. This paper presents a linear model for estimating the moisture content of the 100-hour timelag fuels. The variables in the model...

The model was developed from numerical and analytical solutions of the diffusion forms of the mass continuity equation and the first law of thermodynamics. Analytical solutions provided a functional framework to evaluate nonlinear interactions obtained...

Several fire retardants in current use were dropped from the Canadair CL-215 to determine drop height effects and for evaluation of the tank and gating system. This was accomplished through the quantification and analysis of the characteristics of the...

Describes an algorithm for separating fuel depth data into distinctive groups of measurements. The algorithm is justified heuristically, through its mathematical similarity to the "tuner" of a radio receiver. Test data generated artificially...
