Description: Abstract. Data on the optical absorption properties (expressed as a specific absorption, Ba) of the smoke emissions from fires with forest fuels have been determined for a series of low-intensity field fires and a series of laboratory scale fires. The B, data have been used to estimate the emission factors for graphitic carbon [EF(Ce)] for these test fires to provide data needed for regional visibility studies, tropospheric air chemistry studies, and studies evaluating nuclear winter scenarios.
