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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Smoke may present the most intractable barrier of all to implementing more enlightened fire management. The benefits of a prescribed fire program can only be realized if the public and regulatory agencies agree that the air quality impacts are...

From the Management Implications (p.139-140)... 'Our findings indicate that fuel treatments do mitigate fire severity. Treatments provide a window of opportunity for effective fire suppression and protecting high-value areas. Although topography...

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...
