Description

Recent large fires and reburns in tundra north of the Brooks Range in Alaska have raised interest in the North Slope fire regime and induced some speculation that that it may be changing. The author analysed agency fire records, lightning detection data, and physiography for the area to illustrate current trends in fire size and occurrence.
