To determine whether emissions from operating a wood stove at high altitude differ from those at low altitude, a high altitude sampling program was conducted which was compared to previously collected low altitude data. Emission tests were conducted in the identical model stove using the same type of wood with the same moisture content, amount of wood charged, burning rate, air flow rate, and identical sampling intervals and port locations. Particulate emissions, carbon monoxide, and polycyclic organic matter were analyzed.
