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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

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...

The Fuelbed Characteristic Classification System, or FCCS, (Sandberg and Ottmar 2002) is a systematic catalog of inherent physical properties of any wildland fuelbed. FCCS is designed to provide the best possible fuel estimates and potential fire...

This paper presents a conceptual framework for ranking the crown fire potential of wildland fuelbeds with forest canopies. This approach extends the work by Van Wagner and Rothermel, and introduces several new physical concepts to the modeling of crown...

We present an overview of the Fuel Characteristic Classification System (FCCS), a tool that enables land managers, regulators, and scientists to create and catalogue fuelbeds and to classify those fuelbeds for their capacity to support fire and consume...

The National Fire Danger Rating System (NFDRS) and the Canadian Forest Fire Danger Rating System (CFFDRS) were developed to assess and predict wildfire danger in the forests of the United States and Canada. In addition, the fire weather index...

The Core Fire Science Caucus is a self-directed team of fire scientists who are dedicated to improving the core physical science basis for fire management. Our goal is to provide fire managers with the ability to plan for and predict (in real time) the...
