|Description of project/s|
Understanding biomass burning and local versus distant contributions to pollution, with a focus on CO. Also interested in climate-chemistry links. Experiments include: 1. Full chemistry simulation from 1979 to present; 2. Intercomparison of BB inventories; 3. Tagged CO for pollution event attribution; 4. Using the interactive fire module and comparing to inventories.
