Satellite remote sensing and rain chemistry studies : Two complementary approaches in the study of the impact of vegetation fires on the tropospheric chemistry of a tropical region
This study illustrates the potential of remote sensing of vegetation fires, as derived from NOAA-AVHRR imagery, for the characterisation of the fire source and of its impact on the tropospheric chemistry. Mapping and spatio-temporal analysis tools, developed by the FIRE project, are used to analyse the fire dynamics in Central Africa during two annual periods; these correspond to the periods of rain chemistry studies, carried out as part of the DECAFE programme at two sampling sites in the equatorial forests of the Congo.
