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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Wildland fire is a major disturbance agent that has shaped the biotic landscapes throughout time. The amount and duration of the heat determined by the availability of the fuels to consume is the ultimate driving force that causes a widespread range of...

The forest floor contributes the majority of carbon and nitrogen emitted by boreal forest fires. Therefore, estimates of C and N emissions require characterization of volumetric C and N storage of mature stands. Sampling the forest floor by <5-cm...
