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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Improved official equations are presented for the 1984 version of the Canadian Forest Fire Weather Index System. The most recent mathematical refinements serve to further rationalize the Fine Fuel Moisture Code and render it more compatible with other...

An 80-foot-square plot in a red pine plantation was burned at extreme fire danger as part of a study of fire behavior and effect. When the wind reversed its direction, the original slow-moving back-fire changed within a few minutes to a fast-spreading...

In the open, the Xerometer readings bore almost no relation to the fuel moisture content, probably because the element is too well sheltered from the sun. Since it appears to be but marginally better than relative humidity as a measure of moisture...

The objective of this paper is to explain the distributions, assumptions, interpretations, and relationships of the two compatible, stochastic models of fire history: the negative exponential and the Weibull. For each model the 'fire interval...

The shortest answer to the title question is that a fire's effect is independent of its mode of origin. So, rather than recreating the original fire regime per se, it might be more feasible to aim for the vegetation a natural fire regime would...
