Title: Ammonia emissions from biomass burning

Author: Hegg, Dean A.; Radke, Lawrence F.; Hobbs, Peter V.; Riggan, Philip J.;

Date: 1988

Source: Geophysical Research Letters, 15(4): 335-337

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Measurements in the plumes from seven forest fires show that the concentrations of NH3 were considerably in excess of ambient values. Calculation of NH3 emissions from the fires, based on the ratio of NH3/CO in the plumes and emissions of CO from biomass burning, suggest that biomass burning may be a significant source of attnospheric NH3.
