Daily black carbon emissions data from fires in Northern Eurasia for 2002–2015

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
This data publication, the Fire Emission Inventory – Northern Eurasia (FEI-NE), consists of a high spatial resolution (500 meter × 500 meter) dataset of daily black carbon (BC) emissions from forest, grassland, shrubland, and savanna fires in Northern Eurasia from 2002 to 2015.

Missoula Fire Lab Emission Inventory (MFLEI) for CONUS

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
The Missoula Fire Lab Emission Inventory (MFLEI) is a retrospective, daily wildfire emission inventory for the contiguous United States with a spatial resolution of 250 meters (m). MFLEI was produced using multiple datasets of fire activity and burned area, a newly developed wildland fuels map and an updated emission factor database.

This report characterizes smoke emissions from small-scale prescribed burns in southern California chaparral. In situ measurements of smoke emissions were made from 12 fires.

Intercomparison of Fire Size, Fuel Loading, Fuel Consumption, and Smoke Emissions Estimates on the 2006 Tripod Fire, Washington, USA

Publications Posted on: September 09, 2015
Land managers rely on prescribed burning and naturally ignited wildfires for ecosystem management, and must balance trade-offs of air quality, carbon storage, and ecosystem health. A current challenge for land managers when using fire for ecosystem management is managing smoke production.

Airborne and Lidar measurements of smoke plume rise, emissions, and dispersion

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
This data publication consists of measurements of smoke plume rise, emissions, and dispersion in and around eight wildfires in the western United States and prescribed fires in California, Idaho, and North Carolina. Eleven wildland fires were investigated between August 2009 and August 2011, allowing the research team to measure plume rise and smoke transport over a wide range of meteorological conditions, fire activity, fuels, and terrain.
