CASE STUDY: MICRO PULSE LIDAR MEASURES AEROSOLS CAUSED BY BIOMASS BURNING

Articles & Case Studies



From June to October, the burning of agricultural fields in southern Africa creates smoke that blows west across the southeastern Atlantic Ocean and reaches Brazil, over 4,500 miles away. Using Micro Pulse LiDAR (MPL) and other instruments, researchers at the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) user facility on the remote island of Ascension, operated by the U.S. Department of Energy, collected data for 16 months to help understand how these airborne particles impact the climate.
