Characteristics of atmospheric ice nucleating particles associated with biomass burning in the US: prescribed burns and wildfires
Insufficient knowledge regarding the sources and number concentrations of atmospheric ice nucleating particles (INP) leads to large uncertainties in understanding the interaction of aerosols with cloud processes, such as cloud life time and precipitation rates. An increasingly important source of aerosol in the United States is biomass burning, particularly in the form of prescribed burns and wildfires in the southeastern and western U.S., respectively. Prior field and laboratory observations have suggested that biomass burning can be a source of INP. However, emissions from biomass burning ...
