                         (FRP) to estimate particulate matter with diameter less than 2.5 
                         \μm (PM2.5) and carbon monoxide (CO) emissions for the South 
                         America 2002 burning season. Sixteen smallscale combustion 
                         experiments were performed near the Laboratory of Radiometry 
                         (LARAD) at the National Institute for Space Research (DSR/INPE) to 
                         obtain the coefficient that relates the biomass consumption with 
                         the FRP released. The fire products MOD14/MYD14 from the MODIS 
                         Terra/Aqua platforms and the Wildfire Automated Biomass Burning 
                         Algorithm (WFABBA) on the Geostationary Operational Environmental 
                         Satellite (GOES) were utilized to calculate the total amount of 
                         biomass burned. This inventory is modeled in the Coupled Chemistry 
                         AerosolTracer Transport model coupled to the Brazilian 
                         developments on the Regional Atmospheric Modeling System 
                         (CCATTBRAMS) and compared with data collected in the Large Scale 
                         BiosphereAtmosphere (LBA) Smoke, Aerosols, Clouds, rainfall, and 
                         Climate (SMOCC) and Radiation, Cloud, and Climate Interactions 
                         (RaCCI) Experiments. The relationship between the modeled PM2.5 
                         and CO shows a good agreement with SMOCC/RaCCI data in the general 
                         pattern of temporal evolution. The results showed high 
                         correlations, with values between 0.80 and 0.95 (significant at 
                         0.05 level by student ttest), for the CCATTBRAMS simulations with 
                         PM2.5 and CO. Furthermore, the slope analysis reveals an 
                         underestimation of emission values with CCATTBRAMS modeled values, 
                         2030% lower than observed data with discrepancies mainly on days 
                         with large fires. However, the underestimation is similar to the 
                         uncertainties in traditional emissions methods.",
