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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Fire is a critical disturbance process in determining the structure and distribution of the boreal forest. Fire in the boreal forest typically replaces most of the dominant vegetation cover, liberates substantial carbon and other elements to the...

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...

Large moderate to severe high intensity stand replacement fires characterize the fire regime in the boreal forest of Interior Alaska. It is the moisture content of the moss profile that largely determines ignition probability and depth of fuel...

The moisture content of material on a forest floor can play a significant role in its potential for fire ignition and resulting severity, especially in boreal ecosystems that contain deep layers of moss. To better understand the effect of weather and...
