Bringing People Together & Sharing Knowledge in the Northern Rockies

The air quality topic consists of publications specifically related to the effect of fire on air. It includes papers with air quality monitoring data, the effects of different types of fires on air quality, photoguides to determine smoke concentrations in the air, practices that can help improve air quality forecasting and modeling, and best practices for controlling smoke in prescribed burns. The publications in this topic must have specific air-quality connections.
