Paper Abstract

The gaseous emissions of biomass fires are identified and quantified using two analytical techniques; gas-phase and matrix-isolation Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. The predominant carbon-based gas emissions of fires, CO2, CO and CH4, are assayed by gas-phase FTIR spectroscopy. Matrix-isolation FTIR spectroscopy is used to measure nitrogen-containing, sulphur-containing and the lesser carbonaceous gas emissions of fires. Through these measurements, we hope to estimate the impact of biomass burning on the global budgets of many important atmospheric trace gases.
