Abstract

Trace gas emissions and aerosols from biomass burning represent a significant part of the total gas emissions to the atmosphere, and are therefore of concern to the scientific community dealing with climate change. Methodologies for evaluating these emissions at different scales are required. In this review, the problems and previous undertakings for gas emission estimations are presented; A summary of the factors affecting gas emissions in wild-land fires is analyzed, as well as the different methodologies to compute these emissions, including a discussion of the potentials and limitations of those methodologies.
