Short summary
We characterised trace gas emissions from Australian temperate forest fires through measurements at nine prescribed fires. We find that smoke from Australian forest fires is different from that of American forest fires, and different from Australian savanna fires. This will impact plume chemistry and influence air quality outcomes downwind of the fires. We therefore recommend the use of data specific to Australian forest fires when studying the impacts of these fires on air quality and health.
