Digital Elevation Model (DEM) is an important component of GIS applications in many socio-economic areas. Especially, DEM has a very important role in monitoring and managing natural resources, preventing natural hazards, and supporting spatial decision making. Usually, DEM is built by interpolation from a limited set of sample points. Thus, the accuracy of the DEM is depended on the used interpolation method.

The presentation "Biomass pollution basics" addresses
the basics of biomass burning and introduces participants
to the concept of incomplete combustion, the wide range of
pollutants emitted from wood fires and stoves and typical
pollutant concentrations. Two pollutants are of primary
interest for both health effects and IAP monitoring:
particulate matter (PM) and carbon monoxide (CO).
Smaller particles (PM2.5 and PM1) are likely to be most
harmful, as they penetrate deep into the human lung. Larger
particles are more likely to get 'filtered' by the upper
