Characteristics of the combustion of biomass in tropical forest burnings


One of the areas of activity of the LCP/Inpe is the project Chemistry of the Atmosphere, the main thrust of which is to reveal the effects on the atmosphere of the products of combustion generated by ground fires in tropical forests. The project is being undertaken within the ambit of the institutional Amazon project and includes research activity on micro-ground fires, carried out at premises belonging to the LCP, and on ground fires in the field, in forest regions. The objectives of the proposed project are: a) to carry out new experiments aimed at obtaining data relative to the emission of products of combustion in the atmosphere, due to biomass burnings; b) to establish equations for Brazilian biomass burnings.
