The project was conducted to complete the area source inventories on emissions from forest wildfires, forest managed burns, and agricultural burns for each of the 55 states and territories. Reliable data and information on acreages burned and tons of fuel burned per acre were obtained for each of the approximately 3,100 counties and jurisdictional entities in the country. Literature searches, letters, telephone calls, and personal contacts were used in obtaining the results. The most reliable data were selected and entered on NEDS area source coding forms under the guidelines of the Project Officer for inclusion in the NEDB. Presently, the values obtained are the best and most reliable for these burning activities. No estimates were recorded for locations that had no available data or information.
