Description: Biomass burning on a global scale injects a substantial quantity of gaseous and particulate matter emissions into the troposphere. Some of these combustion products are known to accumulate in the atmosphere and are implicated in observed changes in tropospheric composition and chemistry. The practice of open burning of biomass has come under close examination as a result of its pollution potential. In the United States, most biomass burning is managed in order to limit pollutant release. Recently, it has been inferred that biomass burning may produce a net increase in the concentration of "greenhouse gases" and particles in the atmosphere.

Keywords: fire behavior, prescribed fire, smoke characteristics, biomass burning
