In September-October 2015, ElNino and positive Indian Ocean Dipole conditions set the stage for massive fires in Sumatra and Kalimantan (Indonesian Borneo), leading to persistently hazardous levels of smoke pollution across much of Equatorial Asia....

We apply satellite fire detection products and air quality modeling to study the contribution of fire emissions to ambient aerosol concentrations over the southeastern U.S. We find that satellite MODIS fire counts show more extensive summer burnings...

Atmospheric spectra reconstructed from interferometric measurements are susceptible to scene motion, which can be caused by changing environment or instrument jitter. This leads to a coupling between the time series of the modulated scene radiance and...

The dynamics and structure of the phytomass and production of an undisturbed mesotrophic dwarf shrub-sphagnum phytocenosis and one burned by fire have been compared. The net primary production (NPP) of both sites of phytocenoses in the postpyrogenic...
