AirFire works with partners from across the country to compute and analyze fire emissions. Fire emissions are important for many purposes including creating forecasts of smoke impacts, analyzing biogeochemical cycles, and modeling climate change.
AirFire’s emissions inventories for wildland fire are detailed on our Emissions Inventory page. These emissions inventories are typically created either through real-time efforts to predict smoke or through retrospective efforts to create more detailed emissions inventories for regulatory and historical analysis purposes. A substantial effort is currently underway to create an improved 2014 wildland fire National Emissions Inventory . Please see the 2014 NEI Effort page for more information.
AirFire has also examined fire emissions computations extensively through the Joint Fire Science Program’s Smoke and Emissions Modeling Intercomparison Project (SEMIP).
