Large forest fires in Canada, 1959–1997
[1] A Large Fire Database (LFDB), which includes information on fire location, start date, final size, cause, and suppression action, has been developed for all fires larger than 200 ha in area forExpand

Carbon, energy and water fluxes at mature and disturbed forest sites, Saskatchewan, Canada
Fire and harvesting are important disturbances in the boreal forest, driving net biome production. Measurements of net ecosystem production (NEP) over mature forest stands have been made fromfluxExpand

Direct carbon emissions from Canadian forest fires, 1959-1999
Direct emissions of carbon from Canadian forest fires were estimated for all Canada and for each ecozone for the period 1959-1999. The estimates were based on a data base of large fires for theExpand

The effect of post-fire stand age on the boreal forest energy balance
Fire in the boreal forest renews forest stands and changes the ecosystem properties. The successional stage of the vegetation determines the radiative budget, energy balance partitioning,Expand
