Emission Estimation

Working Group Focus

Quantify the contribution of multiple sources of variability to fire emission estimates.

Led by

  • Madina Doumbia, University Péléforo Gon Coulibaly, Korhogo, Côte d'Ivoire
  • N'Datchoh Evelyne Touré, Université Félix Houphouët-Boigny, Côte d'Ivoire
  • Shobha Kondragunta, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, USA

Potential Goals

  • Regional intercomparison quantification of different inventories
  • Summary of strengths and weaknesses by region and biome
  • Study of using the same emission factors in emission creation
  • Comprehensive VIIRS-only evaluation
  • How important is temporal variability in emission factors
