Short summary
Emissions from fires are estimated as products of fuel load, burning efficiency, area burnt and emission factors for compounds of interest. Uncertainties in these variables lead to a wide range of estimates. We demonstrate that the probability of estimating true emissions declines strongly as the amount of information available declines. Including coarse woody debris in estimates increased uncertainty in calculations because it was the most variable contributor to fuel load.
