Emissions measurements from vegetation fires: A comparative evaluation of methods and results [chapter 4]


Ward, D. E.; Radke, L. F. 1993. Emissions measurements from vegetation fires: A comparative evaluation of methods and results [chapter 4]. In: Crutzen, P. J.; Goldammer, J. G., eds. Fire in the Environment: The Ecological, Atmospheric, and Climatic Importance of Vegetation Fires. Dahlem Workshop Reports: Environmental Sciences Research Report 13. Chischester, England: John Wiley & Sons. p. 53-76.

Fires in the open environment produce a diversity of combustion products. Special techniques are needed to characterize the emissions ranging from microcombustion-evolved gas analysis to airborne monitoring of the full-scale phenomenon. This chapter discusses the advantages and disadvantages of each, the use of data in models for full-scale fires, and provides a discussion of the measurement needs for more fully understanding the release of emissions on a global/temporal scale.

Keywords: vegetation fires, emissions measurements, combustion products
