Short summary
In order to support regional modeling impact on air quality and policy making on controlling open biomass burning emissions, accurate open biomass burning emissions were estimated from 2003 to 2015 with high spatial and temporal resolution. Multiple satellite data, updated biomass data and survey results were all used to improve the accuracy. In addition, management policies and all influencing factors in rural areas for open biomass burning emissions were considered.
