Fire emissions in the Global Wildfire Information System (version 2-3-1)

Collection: CEMS-GWIS : Copernicus Emergency Management System - Global Wildfire Information System 

Description

This dataset series refers to the information on fire emissions provided by the Global Wildfire Information System (GWIS). ▷_How to cite: see below_◁  

Fire emissions information is a selection of fire emissions species presented in GWIS to allow compatibility with the emissions estimates provided in the European Forest Fire Information System (EFFIS). Available fire emissions species are black carbon; methane; carbon dioxide; carbon monoxide; solfur dioxide; nitogen oxides; organic carbon; particulate matter; non-methane hydro-carbon; and total carbon in aerosols.
