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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

In 1992 the Greater Vancouver Water District began an extensive ecological inventory of its three watersheds (53,600 ha) that serve as the drinking water source for the Greater Vancouver Region. The focus of the inventory, which integrates physical and...

We present results from ongoing research into 20th Century fire regimes in two large Rocky Mountain wilderness areas. Fire patterns are represented as digital fire atlases based on archival forest service data. We find that spatial and temporal fire...

In the chy montaue forests of western North America frequent disturbances of variable types and intensities are a source of fine-scale heterogeneity in forest structure. Structural variability retlects complex spatial and temporal interactions between...

Fuel input layers for the FARSITE fire growth model were created for all lands in and around the Gila National Forest, New Mexico, using satellite imagery, terrain modeling, and biophysical simulation. FARSITE is a spatially explicit fire growth model...

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...

Understanding the trade-off between short-term and long-term consequences of fire impacts on ecosystems is needed before a comprehensive fuels management program can be implemented nationally. We are comparing three vegetation models that may be used...

Researchers have been using models to predict and study wildfire behavior for approximately fifty years. These models range in complexity from simple algebraic models that may be implemented in graphical form or on hand-held calculators to complex...

Land managers need the ability to assess alternative fuel treatments. Assessing fuel treatments requires modeling fire behavior and fire effects. Estimates of canopy fuel characteristics, including bulk density, crown base height, available canopy fuel...
