Title: Chemical smoke marker emissions during flaming and smoldering phases of laboratory open burning of wildland fuels

Author: Lee, Taehyoung; Sullivan, Amy P.; Mack, Laura; Jimenez, Jose L.; Kreidenweis, Sonia M.; Onasch, Timothy B.; Worsnop, Douglas R.; Malm, William; Wold, Cyle E.; Hao, Wei Min; Collett, Jeffrey L. Jr.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Smoke emitted by prescribed and wild fires can make a substantial contribution to ambient aerosol (McMeeking et al. 2006; Park et al. 2007; Spracklen et al. 2007). Approaches to investigate these contributions have used a variety of different chemical smoke markers, including levoglucosan, produced by thermal degradation of cellulose, and water-soluble potassium (Andreae 1983; Engling et al. 2006; Hays et al. 2002; Simoneit 2002;Ward et al. 2006). Filter sampling is commonly employed to measure smoke markers in ambient and source samples; however, these time-integrated measurements limit knowledge about variability of smoke marker emissions, especially between flaming and smoldering fire phases.

Keywords: smoke, prescribed fires, wild fires, wildland fuels, ambient aerosol
