Short Course Description

Biomass burning is a global phenomenon today related to the burning of vegetation around the globe, for various reasons. Most fires today are man-made and are due to agricultural practices, deforestation, land clearing, etc. In high latitudes lightning can also cause fires. These fires emit huge amounts of gases and particles, while impacting the albedo of the planet. In the course we will discuss many aspects of Biomass Burning, and how it impacts the Earth's climate. We will also discuss fire detection using remote sensing tools, and Fire Weather condition to support biomass burning. We will also discuss future changes in biomass burning due to climate change.
