Apart from wildfires, air quality and health challenges are also created by planned burns in grasslands, shrublands, and farmland. Few studies have investigated how different crops or plant types may contribute to air pollution when burned. The Climate Program Office’s Atmospheric Chemistry, Carbon Cycle and Climate (AC4) Program supported a new study that looks into emissions of […]
CLIMAS, a NOAA CAP/RISA team, investigator co-authors new publication “Stories as data: Indigenous research sovereignty and the “Intentional Fire” podcast” led by SW CASC fellows
Alison Meadow, investigator with the Climate Assessment for the Southwest (CLIMAS) and Southwest Climate Adaptation Center (SW CASC), and others representing the SW CASC and Karuk Tribe Department of Natural Resources co-author a new publication identifying research procedures that respect Indigenous sovereignty and use methods informed by Indigenous knowledge systems.
Experimental forecast calls for a larger-than-average fire season this summer
New study highlights the causes of a large interannual variability in the natural emission of methyl bromide.
In this webinar, the National Weather Service and the RISA Program present stories about researchers, forecasters, and fire managers working together to improve public and wildland firefighter safety.
This project will help managers respond to changing fire regimes by analyzing historical climate observations and future projections to plan for fire management and wildfire potential.
NOAA colleagues from ESRL/CSD and AC4 will be hosting a virtual Town Hall, meant as an update to the FIREX white paper released last fall and AGU Town Hall on wildfires in a changing climate. Read more for a summary of the webinar and to learn how to register.
