The Chemistry of Wildfire Smoke

Date: April 22, 2021
Presenter(s): Jessica B. Gilman

The 4th installment of the Mountain Studies Institute's Learning Series will feature Dr. Jessica Gilman and her research on the air quality impacts of wildfire smoke. Dr. Gilman will describe her work making detailed chemical measurements of biomass burning from the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) lab in Boulder, the Missoula Fire Sciences Laboratory, and aboard the NASA DC-8 research aircraft as it flew through smoke plumes in the western and southeastern U.S. She will then explore the chemistry of wildfires and how its emissions impact air quality and climate.
