Description: Abstract. Absorption properties of smokes from laboratory fires that represent prescription hums in the Southern states have been quantified to relate variations in measured absorption parameters to variation in fire conditions and to estimate emission factors for elemental carbon. Results showed significant differences in absorption of the smoke emissions between flaming and smoldering combustion with specific absorption coefficient Ba values ranging from 0.04 m2 g-1 for smoldering combustion to 1 04 m2 g-1 at 632.8 nm for flaming combustion.
