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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Increasing the frequency and size of prescribed fires is potentially an important tool for reducing the hazard of large stand replacing wildland fires. A number of models are in various stages of development and application for understanding and...

Analyses were conducted of fire and fuel management options for 172 million hectares (424 million acres) of Forest Service and Interior public lands in the contiguous lower 48 states. A landscape dynamics model was calibrated based on fire regime...

Many U.S. forests, especially those with short-interval, low- to moderate severity fire regimes are more dense and have greater quantities of fuels compared to pre-settlement times. Widespread treatments are planned to restore ecological integrity and...

Available fuel and its dynamics, both of which affect fire behavior in forest ecosystems, are direct products of ecosystem production, decomposition, and disturbances. Using published ecosystem models and equations, we developed a simulation model to...

This experiment studied burning characteristics of pine cones as a separate fuel component. Cones of fire resisters ponderosa pine, Jeffrey pine, longleaf pine, and south Florida slash pine, and cones of fire evaders Monterey pine, knobcone pine, sand...

It is commonly accepted that the fire retardant mechanism of boric acid is a physical mechanism achieved by the formation of a coating or protective layer on the wood surface at high temperature. Although a char-forming catalytic mechanism has been...

A new one-dimensional heat conduction model for predicting stem heating during fires is presented. Themodel makes use of moisture- and temperature-dependent thermal properties for layers of bark and wood. The thermal aspects of the processes of bark...

Ecosystem conditions on Federal public lands have changed, particularly within the last 30 years. Wildfires in the west have increased to levels close to or above those estimated for historical conditions, despite increasing efforts and expertise in...

Quantitative information regarding safety zone size for wildland firefighters is limited. We present a 3-surface theoretical model that describes the net radiant energy transfer to a firefighter standing a specified distance from a fire of specified...

All wildland firefighters working on or near the fireline must be able to identify a safety zone. Furthermore, they need to know how 'big' is 'big enough.' Beighley (1995) defined a safety zone as 'an area distinguished by...
