Abstract
A complex approach is considered to the estimation of emissions of carbon gases formed during wildfires in the middle taiga subzone in the Yenisei region of Siberia. Based on the large-scale Siberian wildfires in 2012, the relative contribution of emissions to the values of background concentration of carbon gases (CO2, CH4, CO) in the atmospheric boundary layer measured at the 300-m ZOTTO tall tower is assessed. The degree of ecosystem damage caused by wildfires is estimated depending on their intensity and combustion phase (flame or flameless). Emission factors are calculated for the major carbon gases in wildfire plumes which are the key component for assessing wildfire emissions to the atmosphere.
