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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Burning experiments conducted in the labortory indicated a 25-64 per cent loss of nitrogen from the forest floor at temperatures of 300-700ºC. Burning increased the nitrogen concentration of the residual material, but the total amount of nitrogen...

This paper describes the results of examining the influence of radiative heat transfer on turbulent natural convection above fires in an atmosphere of constant potential temperature, under both the 'opaque' and 'transparent'...

From tabulated frequency distributions of fire danger indexes for a nationwide network of 89 stations, the probabilities of four types of fire behavior ranging from 'fire out' to 'critical' were calculated for each month and are...

From the text 'Shortleaf pine occurs with loblolly pine throughout most of the upper Coastal Plain of the mid-South and Southeast. It is found infrequently with other southern pines where these are predominant in the lower Coastal Plain, and it...

From the text...'In factorial experiments, the effect of two or more factors, each tested at two or more levels, is tested simultaneously. A factorial experiment with n factors and p levels is denoted as a pn factorial. The term factorial refers...

The mechanism of wood burning has been subjected to mathematical analysis. Extensive finite-difference computations for symmetrical and nonsymmetrical heating of flat wood slabs have provided results which appear to shed additional light upon the...

A series of three 4—acre plots in a jack pine cut over were burned at three degrees of fire hazard. The weather, fire behaviour, and effects are reported, and a general conclusion drawn by others was confirmed: slash hazard is reduced by any running...

From the text... 'The final conclusion was, then that for the type of slash studied there is no need to adjust the slash hazard index for exposure through that part of the fire season when wildfires are more likely to occur but, if the ratings are...

From the text... 'The negative and contradictory results of many of the earlier experiments in forestry are primarily due to the inadequacy of the experimental design. Treatments were seldom replicated over the experimental area and in the...

From the text...'A fire-control problem of major proportions in B.C., as in many other areas, results from hazardous accumulations of logging slash. The basic question is whether it is wiser to give cut-over areas added protection and tolerate the...
