Plume heights from wildfires are used in climate modeling to predict and understand trends in aerosol transport. This paper examines whether smoke from grassland fires in the desert regions of western and central Australia ever rises above the atmospheric boundary layer. Three methods for deriving plume heights from the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) instrument were utilized: (1) the MISR standard stereo-height algorithm; (2) the MISR enhanced stereo product; and (3) the MISR… CONTINUE READING
