Smoke Emissions & Dispersion

Research Brief Description
SERDP RC20-1025

Wildfire science is currently impeded by gaps between measurements, modeling, and management. This project is using integrative efforts to close those gaps.

RxCadre Project

Obtaining integrated, quality-assured fuels, fire, and atmospheric data for development and evaluation of fuels, fire behavior, smoke, and fire effects models

State of the Science on Wildland Fire Emissions

A summary of what we know and don’t know about wildland fire smoke emissions and pollutants and management options.

Long term wildfire management in areas near Chernobyl

This project examined natural and human drivers of wildfires in areas contaminated by the Chernobyl explosion.

Wildland Fire Smoke Sensors

In the US, wildland fires are a recurring, episodic source of air pollution that can be a major threat to public health.

Agricultural Smoke

Experiments to improve agricultural smoke decision support tools

Near Real-Time Burned Area Mapping with VIIRS

Wildland fires emit significant amounts of greenhouse gases, particulate matter, and ozone precursors which have significant negative effects on public health at multiple scales.
