[1] There were large interannual variations in burned area in the boreal region (ranging between 3.0 and 23.6 10 ha yr ) for the period of 1992 and 1995–2003 which resulted in corresponding variations in total carbon and carbon monoxide emissions. We estimated a range of carbon emissions based on different assumptions on the depth of burning because of uncertainties associated with the burning of surface-layer organic matter commonly found in boreal forest and peatlands, and average total… CONTINUE READING
