Critical assessment of wildland fire emissions inventories: methodology, uncertainty, effectiveness - Final Report to the Joint Fire Science Program

Author(s): Wei Min Hao, Shawn P. Urbanski, Helen T. Naughton
Year Published: 2016
Description:

The project addressed the following tasks: 1) Review and summarize the technical details of major FEIS. 2) Quantify the uncertainty of the components of burned area, fuel loading, and emission factors of each FEIS. 3) Quantify the uncertainty of emissions estimated by each FEIS at scales relevant to modeling ozone, PM2.5 NAAQS, and Regional Haze. 4) Compare the daily fire emissions inventories for six large wildfire events representing the dominant fire impacted ecosystems over CONUS. 5) Survey development/maintenance costs and conduct cost-effectiveness analysis for each FEIS.
