International Workshop on Fires in South Asia: Current status and future challenges in monitoring, modeling, predictions and mitigation
3 December 2021 – 4 December 2021 (11:30 UTC to 14:30 UTC)
Organized by The Integrated Land Ecosystem-Atmosphere Processes Study (iLEAPS), Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC)-Pune and Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM)
Supported by IGAC-MANGO and MAP-AQ
Biomass burning in South Asia leads to the discharge of large amounts aerosol particles and traces gases during post-monsoon and pre-monsoon period that play important roles in air quality degradation and may have impact on human health in this region. Despite substantial research in South Asia, significant gaps still remain in our understanding on how to observe, estimate, model and mitigate the fire emissions. The purpose of the International Workshop on Fires in South Asia is to provide a forum to discuss current status and future challenges in modeling, predictions and mitigation of fire emissions, and to strengthen the collaborations between the different international and national groups.
The workshop themes include
(a) Observations of fires in south Asia
(b) Fire emission inventories
(c) Influence of stubble burning on air quality
(d) Challenges in modelling and prediction
(e) Regulations and management of fires.
