FireLab 2009

What Smoke emissions measured from controlled, laboratory burns of fuels common to the Southeastern, Southwestern, and Northern United States

When February 2009

Where USDA Fire Sciences Laboratory in Missoula, Montana

How Various instruments making gas-phase measurements of laboratory biomass burns

Who Investigators from NOAA ESRL Chemical Sciences Division, the University of Colorado, Boulder, and the University of Montana, Missoula.

Science Goals:

To measure the smoke emissions from 18 different fuels common to the United States using a full suite of gas-phase instrumentation in order to evaluate the air quality and climate implications of biomass burning emissions.
