Biomass Burning and Global Change
Assesses the impact of biomass burning as a driver for global change. The two volumes bring together the most recent results of a massive climatic research project in over 80 contributions by more than 200 scientists representing more than a dozen countries. Divided into the tropical, temperate, and boreal regions of the world, all aspects of biomass burning are covered, from fire ecology to atmospheric chemistry and climate. |Topics include the remote sensing of fires from space, the characteristics and ecology of fire, gaseous and particulate emmissions from burning, and the impact of these emissions on the chemistry of the troposhere and stratosphere and on global climate.
