|North of Brasilia||Four small cerrado (grass and shrub) fires||See Hobbs' photos on Roll #1 photos #4-7|
|1690||21 Aug||1802 - 1905||Brazilia||Extensive measurements on 1 small prescribed cerrado burn. A few measurements, prior to prescribed burn, on another cerrado plume.||IBAMA prescribed burn. Also measurements from IBAMA Banderante (Riggan) and Lear jet (Brass) aircraft. Ground observations by Ottmar. (See Hobbs' photos on Roll #1 photos #12-17.)|
|1692||24 Aug||1723 - 1758
1826 - 1905
|North of Cuiaba||Several grass and forest fires. Last plume studied was flaming combustion of trees.||Sampled last plume (from flaming combustion of trees) at several distances downwind. (See Hobbs' photos on Roll 2 photos #4-6.) Should be good for emission factors. Also good lidar, optical, and TDDR measurements.|
|1693||25 Aug||1750 - 2025||West and north of Cuiaba||Slash burn of logged area in regular rows.||Many passes through plume. (See Hobbs' photos on Roll 2 photos #18-24 showing fuel rows and plumes.) Lots of humidigraphs.|
|1695||28 Aug||1717 - 1735
1802 - 1842
1902 - 1928
|West of Cuiaba||Sampled 2 plumes for emission factors. Smoldering grass fires, maybe some flames. (See Hobbs' photos Roll 4 photos #4-6.)||Sampled 2nd fire fairly extensively at several distances downwind. Good OEC data. Flight primarily devoted to two smoke-cloud interaction studies.|
|1703||7 Sep||1547 - 1814||South-east of Porto Velho||Sampled 1 good plume for chemical measurements and another plume near by for physical measurements. Fire was slash burning of downed (dead) trees.||Flight devoted primarily to vertical profile over sunphotometers and CAR measurements. ER-2 overflight.|

1601 - 1609
|South-east of Porto Velho||Sampled 2 plumes from slash burning of downed (dead) trees. (See Hobbs' Roll 5 photo #17.)||Good chemical measurements on 1st plume|
|1705||12 Sep||1714 - 2001||South-east of Porto Velho||(1) Smoldering slash burn of dead trees some flames) produced white
and black smoke. (See Hobbs' Roll 5 photos #18-22.)
(2) Some individual (smoldering) slash burns.
(3) Flaming grass burn (black smoke). (See Hobbs' Roll 5 photo #23.)
|Flight largely devoted to individual plumes and smoke-cloud
interactions. Good optical measurements.
(1) Emission factors, evolution, and measurements in and around cloud produced by fire.
(3) Emission factors and physical measurements.
|1706||13 Sep||1650 - 1723||North-east of Porto Velho||Flaming slash burn on edge of forest. (See Hobbs' Roll 6 photos #1 and 2.)||Emission factors. Time evolution measurements, and effects on cloud.|
|1706||13 Sep||1814 - 1826||North-east of Porto Velho||Pasture grass fire. (See Hobbs' Roll 6 photo #3.)||Emission factors, evolution, humidigraphs.|
|1707||14 Sep||1314 - 1315||North-east of Porto Velho||Haze and cloud too thick to ground.||Transit flight. One bag for physical measurements on a plume at 9000ft.|
|1708||14 Sep||1810 - 1811||East of Manaus||Slash burn||Transit flight. One plume sample.|
|1710||16 Sep||1400 - 1532||~100 miles south of Maraba||Smoldering combustion of primary forest and undergrowth. (See Hobbs' Roll 6 photo #4.)||Three samples of plumes for emission factors. (See Hobbs' Roll 6 photos #5-7 showing burned areas and ash, south of Maraba.)|
|1711||16 Sep||1845 - 1918
1930 - 2040
|North-east of Maraba||(1) Pasture burning, some flames, brown.
(2) Flaming combustion of trees and undergrowth.
