BIOMASS burning is a primary source of many trace substances that are important in atmospheric chemistry1–6. More than 80% of the world's biomass burning takes place in the tropics3 as a result of savanna fires, forest-clearing activity, and the burning of agricultural waste and wood. Here we report results from laboratory studies on the emission of… CONTINUE READING
