Summary
Abstract: The Fire Product: Estimation of Biomass, Burn Severity and Carbon
Efflux in Alaska was part of the International Geosphere-Biosphere
Programme Data and Information System (IGBP-DIS) Regional Satellite
Fire Data Compilation CD-ROM.

Fire disturbance in Boreal forests can release carbon stored in both
the aboveground vegetation and the organic soil layer to the
atmosphere. Estimating pyrogenic ... View entire text
