Smoke Management Photographic Guide: a visual aid for communicating smoke impacts.

Date: November 2, 2016
Presenter(s): Joshua C. Hyde

Communicating emissions impacts to the public can sometimes be difficult because quantitatively conveying smoke concentrations is complicated. Regulators and land managers often refer to particulate-matter concentrations in micrograms per cubic meter, but this may not be intuitive or meaningful to everyone. The Smoke Management Photographic Guide was produced to serve as a tool for communicating potential particulate matter levels during wildfire events using visual representation. In this webinar we will provide background on the guide, and describe the approach and methodology by which the guide was created.

This webinar was hosted by the Northwest Fire Science Consortium.
