Short summary
The study found significant differences in smoke plumes attributed to different vegetation type fires in northern temperate and boreal regions. Plume particle sizes and optical properties varied not only when comparing grass and forest emissions, but also plumes from different forest types. Particles were found to increase in size in ageing plumes. Determined growth rates were significant and consistent between the emissions of different origin.
