Short summary
Field measurements of gas flare emissions often assume that combustion species are spatially and temporally correlated in the plume. By measuring black carbon (BC) and water vapour in turbulent lab-scale flare plumes, this study shows that the well-correlated species assumption is not universally valid and that field measurements may be subject to large added uncertainty. Further analysis suggests that this uncertainty is easily avoided, and initial guidance is provided on sampling protocols.
