CHIMERE Biomass burning emissions program

The CHIMERE model is able to read biomass burning emissions fluxes as input. The emifiresCAMS program reads the already calculated CAMS fluxes and reprojects the values on the CHIMERE grid and with the used chemical model species. This program is plug and play and enables to quickly prepare data that can be used for a simulation.

Sources codes, databases and documentations are available for download on the "CHIMERE download" web page.
