Fire frequency, extent, and size exhibit a strong linkage with climate conditions and play a vital role in the climate system. Previous studies have shown that the frequency of large fires in the western United States increased significantly since the...

In this study, we explored the relationships between the satellite-retrieved fire counts (FC), fire radiative power (FRP) and aerosol indices usingmulti-satellite datasets at a daily time-step covering ten different biomass burning regions in Asia. We...

We revisited long-term observations of PM2.5 at ground-based stations in Japan during 2001-2012 to examine possible impacts of Siberian wildfires on regional air quality. Exceedances of Japan's air quality standard for daily mean concentration (35...

Vegetation fires emit large amounts of nitrogen compounds in the atmosphere, including ammonia (NH3). These emissions are still subject to large uncertainties. In this study, we analyze time series of monthly NH3 total columns (molec cm-2) from the...

The paper discusses the main uncertainties of wild-land fire emission estimates used in the AQMEII-II case study. The wild-land fire emission of particulate matter for the summer fire season of 2010 in Eurasia was generated by the Integrated System for...

Past studies suggest that forest fires contribute significantly to the formation of ozone in the troposphere. However, the emissions of ozone precursors from wildfires, and the mechanisms involved in ozone production from boreal fires, are very...

Estimating population exposure to particulate matter during wildfires can be difficult because of insufficient monitoring data to capture the spatiotemporal variability of smoke plumes. Chemical transport models (CTMs) and satellite retrievals provide...

Crop-residue burning plays an important role in regional air quality and global climate change. The North China Plain, the largest winter wheat production district in China, experiences extensive crop fires during harvest seasons. Traditional methods...
