Author(s): Randi R. Jandt; Joseph M. Little; Stacy A. Drury; Allen Molina; Brock Lane
Publication Date: 2019

This compilation is intended to provide an illustrated overview of the current science of fuelbreaks in Alaska boreal forest, with citations and links to additional reference material for practitioners and the public.  Research on fuelbreaks in the high northern latitudes is scarce, yet there is a pressing need for strategies to improve infrastructure and public protection from wildfires which are intensifying as the climate warms. This guide is a follow-on product of the Joint Fire Science funded project: Evaluating the Effectiveness of Fuel Treatments in Alaska (Little, et al. 2018).
