Siberian wildfires and related gas and aerosol emissions into the atmosphere over the past decades

  title={Siberian wildfires and related gas and aerosol emissions into the atmosphere over the past decades},
  author={Igor I. Mokhov and Sergei A. Sitnov},
Siberian wildfires and related regional anomalies of atmospheric impurities during the period of 2000-2019 are analyzed. The long-range transport of biomass burning products from Siberian wildfires into the Arctic atmosphere during the period of 2000-2019 is estimated. An analysis of the characteristics of forest fires over the past two decades revealed a significant increase in radiation power of an average Siberian wildfire. A joint analysis of fire activity in Siberian forests, as well as…
