Of Georgia's 37 million acres, 24.8 million acres are forestland. On an average, 1.2 million acres are prescribed burned each year. Georgia faces two main challenges with their prescribed fire program, air quality and urban sprawl. These two will...

The burning of agricultural crop residue represents a major source of trace gases (CO, CO2, NO, NO2, and NOx) and particulate matter on a regional and global scale. This study investigates the gaseous and particulate emissions from the burning of rice...

Biomass burning is a major source of aerosols that affect air quality and the Earth's radiation budget. Current estimates of biomass burning emissions vary markedly due to uncertainties in biomass density, combustion efficiency, emission factor,...

Plume dispersion models may improve assessment of the health effects associated with forest fire smoke, but they require considerable expertise in atmospheric and fire sciences to initialize and evaluate. Products from MODIS (Moderate Resolution...

The combine harvesting technology which has become common in the rice-wheat system in India leaves behind large quantities of straw in the field for open residue burning, and Punjab is one such region where this is regularly happening. This becomes a...

A newly developed method, which involves the use of satellite measurements of energy released by fires, was used to estimate smoke emissions in the United States (US) Southern Great Plains (SGP). This SGP region was chosen because extensive...

Emissions of aerosol from biomass burning in northern Australia are globally significant, yet existing estimates of their magnitude are essentially unconstrained by observation. This two-part series (see Part II by Luhar et al. [2008. Biomass burning...
