Short summary
We estimated and evaluated the air pollutant emissions from open biomass burning in the Yangtze River Delta with three methods. Chemistry transport modeling indicated that the constraining method provided the best emissions. The traditional bottom-up method could often overestimate emissions and could hardly track their interannual trends. The emissions based on fire radiative power might be underestimated, which is attributed to the satellite detection limit on small fires.
