Abstract: Current work under the NASA-CMS Flux Pilot project includes measures of biomass burning emissions for the quantification of carbon flux from land to the atmosphere. Fire is recognized as an important mechanism for this exchange. Measures of biomass burning emissions are included in this pilot project, but the estimates would greatly benefit f ... [more]
