Concentrations of chemical species released during the combustion of biomass in the Amazon Forest


Our work proposes, by means of experiments of combustion of biomass in the laboratory and in the field, to: a) cover an extensive range of combustibles, at least 10 most abundant species in a region of the Amazon Forest, in a strip of types of biomass (litter, branches, trunks); b) deduce tendencies and parameters of value to predict emissions in the combustion of biomass; how the emissions of certain types of biomass vary with the humidity, wind direction and oxygen supply; c) undertake detailed analysis in respect of the calibration of the instruments and their maintenance (to produce data of quality); d) to undertake elemental analysis of quality in the combustible and in the ash, at least for C, H, and N, and possibly for other elements (S, P, CI, Br, I).
