Record #188729:

Fire behavior, weather, and burn severity of the 2007 Anaktuvuk River tundra fire, North Slope, Alaska / Benjamin M. Jones, and 5 others.

Title: Fire behavior, weather, and burn severity of the 2007 Anaktuvuk River tundra fire, North Slope, Alaska / Benjamin M. Jones, and 5 others.
Author(s): Jones, Benjamin M.
Date: 2009.
In: Arctic, Antarctic, and Alpine Research. (2009.), Vol. 41(3) (2009)
Abstract: Discusses conditions responsible for 2007 Anaktuvuk River tundra fire, which burned for nearly three months, consuming more than 100,000 ha. Conditions include record high summer temperature and record low summer precipitation, late-season high-pressure system located over Beaufort Sea, extremely dry soil conditions throughout summer, and sustained southerly winds during period of vegetation senescence. Burn severity mapping reveals that more than 80% of fire burned at moderate to extreme severity.
