Daily emission inventories from biomass burning have been developed specifically for AMMA at 1km2 over Africa. These inventories have been developed using L3JRC burnt area data and GLC vegetation maps. Emission budgets as well as interannual variabilities will be discussed and compared to previous available inventories.
These new inventories associated with the most recent fossil fuel and biofuel emission inventories (Junker and Liousse, 2008) have been introduced in the ORISAM-RAD-TM4 model in order to compare modeled results vs. available measurements. A global simulation has been performed all along the EOP period with ORISAM-RAD-TM4 including a detailed 6-bin dynamic sectional aerosol module, comprising all aerosol components and secondary particle formation (SOA, sulfate, coarse nitrate, ammonium, water ...). With such a configuration, optical properties are calculated, considering aerosol internal mixing.
Major trends observed over Africa using both surface, vertical measurements and satellite data are well reproduced by our global model associated with the above updated biomass burning emissions. Seasonal variations of modeled and measured BC concentrations and AOD values are well simulated at Djougou, Lamto and Banizoumbou sites. Nice comparisons are also found with measured surface measurements of scattering coefficients at Djougou. Finally, we also present first comparisons of size resolved concentrations of mineral and organic species.
