Relationships between energy release, fuel mass loss, and trace gas and aerosol emissions during laboratory biomass fires


Freeborn, Patrick H.; Wooster, Martin J.; Hao, Wei Min; Ryan, Cecily A. Nordgren, Bryce L.; Baker, Stephen P.; Ichoku, Charles. 2008. Relationships between energy release, fuel mass loss, and trace gas and aerosol emissions during laboratory biomass fires. Journal of Geophysical Research. 113: D01301. doi: 10.1029/2007JD008679.

Forty-four small-scale experimental fires were conducted in a combustion chamber to examine the relationship between biomass consumption, smoke production, convective energy release, and middle infrared (MIR) measurements of fire radiative energy (FRE). Fuel bed weights, trace gas and aerosol particle concentrations, stack flow rate and temperature, and concurrent thermal images were collected during laboratory-controlled burns of vegetative fuels.

Keywords: biomass fires, energy release, fuel mass loss, trace gas, aerosol emissions
