Short summary
In this study we identify pyrolysis gases from prescribed burns conducted in pine forests using a manual extraction device. Captured gases were analyzed in the laboratory using infrared absorption spectroscopy. Results show that emission ratios relative to CO for ethene and acetylene were significantly greater than in previous fire studies, suggesting the sampling device was able to collect gases generated prior to ignition; this is corroborated by novel detections of five compounds via FTIR.
