Wildfire Research Team
The Wildfire Research Team works to study many aspects of biomass burning, a major terrestrial disturbance agent and an important contributor to the concentrations of many atmospheric species. On average more than 3% of Earth’s vegetated land surface are burned annually, and for atmospheric species such as carbon monoxide and black carbon particles biomass burning represents one of the largest sources.
Our work focused initially on satellite Earth Observation methods, but now includes airborne and ground-based remote sensing, other field measurement techniques (e.g. gas and aerosol sampling), simulation modelling, fire forecasting, as well as links to Fire and Rescue services related to training and operationalisation of some of these techniques.
