A team of researchers use observations from FIREX-AQ to quantify sulfur dioxide emissions from wildfires and agricultural burns across the western US to understand how regional and long-range air quality can be affected, in a new research study supported by AC4.
Using data from the FIREX-AQ field campaign, a new AC4-funded research study develops a comparison between aerosol concentration and the way aerosol particles scatter light in the atmosphere, offering new insights into wildfire smoke evolution.
A new AC4-funded publication utilizes FIREX-AQ observations to evaluate common modeling representations of wildfire smoke plumes and finds they can be improved by expanding the use of observations for heat flux and boundary layer height.
Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather.
