Interpretation of the charcoal record in forest soils: forest fires and their production and deposition of macroscopic charcoal



Interpretation of the charcoal record in forest soils: forest fires and their production and deposition of macroscopic charcoal



Holocene 10(4): 519-525



Traps were used to quantify charcoal production and transport during three experimental forest fires in boreal Scandinavia. The traps were spatially arranged to collect charcoal particles inside burn areas, and outside burn areas at different distances (0.1-100 m) from the fire edge. The number of inside and outside traps was 280 and 424, respectively. The trap area was 48 cmsuperscript 2.
