Short description:

This book offers an interdisciplinary perspective on the impacts of biomass burning on environmental resources, climate, and the atmosphere. It gives several examples linking top-down remote sensing, bottom-up ground-based measurements, and an integrated modeling to address the impacts of biomass burning and land-atmosphere interactions.

Long description:

Biomass burning is one of the most important sources of greenhouse gas emissions and aerosols in South and Southeast Asia and greatly impacts other countries through transboundary air pollution. With contributions from leading scientists, this volume offers an interdisciplinary perspective on the impacts of biomass burning on the land resources, climate, and the atmosphere. It showcases several examples linking top-down remote sensing, bottom-up ground-based measurements, and an integrated modeling to address the impacts of biomass burning and land?atmosphere interactions. It is a valuable guide for readers in atmospheric science, ecology, spatial geography, remote sensing, and GIS.


?




  • This book is unique as it highlights the sources and the causes of biomass burning and atmospheric research in South and Southeast Asia.



  • It explains the latest tools and techniques, in particular the use of satellite remote sensing and geospatial technologies for fire mapping, monitoring, and land cover/land use change.



  • It focuses on large spatial scales integrating top-down and bottom-up methodologies.



  • It addresses the pressing issues of air pollution rampant in South and Southeast Asia.



  • It includes contributions from global experts working on biomass burning projects in the USA, Japan, South/Southeast Asia, and Europe.



The contents of this book will appeal to students and professionals using remote sensing and geospatial techniques, including geographers, ecologists, atmospheric and environmental scientists, and all who are interested in biomass burning pollution.
