Title: Enhanced biogenic emissions of nitric oxide and nitrous oxide following surface biomass burning

Author: Anderson, Iris C.; Levine, Joel S.; Poth, Mark A.; Riggan, Philip J.;

Date: 1988

Source: Journal of Geophysical Research. 93(D4): 3893-3898

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Recent measurements indicate significantly enhanced biogenic soil emissions of both nitric oxide (NO) and nitrous oxide (N2O) following surface burning. These enhanced fluxes persisted for at least 6 months following the burn. Simultaneous measurements indicate enhanced levels of exchangeable ammonium in the soil following the burn. Biomass burning is known to be an instantaneous source of NO and N2O resulting from high-temperature combustion. Now we find that biomass burning also results in significantly enhanced biogenic emissions of these gases, which persist for months following the burn.

Keywords: chaparral, prescribed burning, fire, chamise, ceanothus, oak
