Biomass burning makes an important impact on atmospheric chemistry through the emission of large quantities of many trace gases into the atmosphere. We describe the application of three FTIR-based methods to the analysis of the composition of the smoke from different types of biomass fires. In two laboratory-based methods, smoke samples are analyzed by gas-phase absorption and matrix isolation FTIR spectroscopy. In the third method, an FTIR spectrometer is used in the field to measure absorption spectra in situ in the plumes from prescribed and large scale laboratory fires.
