Wildfire atmospheric chemistry: climate and air quality impacts

Author(s): Stephanie R. Schneider, Jonathan P. D. Abbatt
Year Published: 2022

Wildfires emit significant amounts of material into the atmosphere. To fully understand the impact of these emissions an accurate understanding of wildfire smoke chemistry is needed. This perspective highlights our chemical understanding and research gaps regarding the impacts of wildfire smoke on air quality and climate.
