    The emission of pollutants by forest fires and agricultural burns, contributes to the air contamination and global climatic change. In the former, yields incidences of respiratory and allergic illnesses, among others, particularly among elders and children. The smoke also contains toxic agents and potentially carcinogen elements. In the later, CO2 is the most important greenhouse gas. The information of smoke emissions in Mexico is very scarce, and this sort of information is very variable in the international scenario. Because of that, the objective of this work was to estimate the emissions of seven pollutants: NO, NO2, CO, SO2, CO2, HC and particulate matter

    Keyworks: fire, pollution, smokes, global climatic change, carbon dioxide.
