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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Wildfires in the boreal forests and peatlands of the ABoVE domain are a natural disturbance agent, but are increasing in frequency and severity. Boreal forest fires impart relatively large forcings on the climate system as a result of (i) typically...

At three locations in the ABoVE domain in-situ data loggers have been installed since summer 2017 to obtain time series data on soil moisture and temperature across a variety of land cover types, including tundra, boreal peatlands, and boreal uplands....

Our goal was to improve understanding of the interactions of wildfire and hydrology (including permafrost changes) and the ensuing post-fire successional trajectories in both uplands and peatlands of the Artic-Boreal Zone (ABZ) in a changing climate....

Permafrost peatlands store globally significant amounts of soil organic carbon (SOC) that may be vulnerable to climate change. Permafrost thaw exposes deeper, older SOC to microbial activity, but SOC vulnerability to mineralization and release as...

Formal regulation of private property and exploration of 'risk transmission' across ownerships are two popular means for addressing wildfire management at landscape scales. However, existing studies also indicate that a number of barriers exist for...
