Wildland fire in ecosystems: effects of fire on air

Author(s): David V. Sandberg, Roger D. Ottmar, Janice L. Peterson, John Core
Year Published: 2002
Description:

This state-of-knowledge review about the effects of fire on air quality can assist land, fire, and air resource managers with fire and smoke planning, and their efforts to explain to others the science behind fire-related program policies and practices to improve air quality. Chapter topics include air quality regulations and fire; characterization of emissions from fire; the transport, dispersion, and modeling of fire emissions; atmospheric and plume chemistry; air quality impacts of fire; social consequences of air quality impacts; and recommendations for future research.
