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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.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 paper discusses the overall effects fire has on the carbon budget of boreal forests. Studies on using the boreal forest as a means to sequester carbon have not adequately accounted for these effects. Among other approaches, it has been suggested...

An increasing severity in the occurrence of wildfires in Mexico has been recently associated with the activity of 'El Nino' Southern Oscillation (ENSO). A spatio-temporal analysis of fire potential indicated that indeed, catastrophic fires...
