Consolidating bottom-up and top-down approaches for GHG emissions estimates from fires

Consolidating bottom-up and top-down approaches for GHG emissions estimates from fires

Currently there are two accepted methods for estimating GHG emissions from bushfires. The bottom-up approach uses burnt area, fuel load and combustion completeness estimates. The top-down approach uses estimates of fire radiative energy. The resulting GHG emissions estimates of the two methods differ significantly. This project will compare the two methods for areas in Australian savannas and try to consolidate the two approaches.
