Smoke Emissions

This topic has four subtopics including: climate & smoke; fire & smoke models; smoke & populations; and smoke emissions. Each of these subtopics focuses on different types of smoke information. Climate & smoke focuses on how our changing weather conditions are affecting emissions. Fire and smoke models concentrates on modeling techniques and how they are working for smoke. Smoke and populations focuses on the health effects of smoke on humans and wildlife. Smoke emissions is generally data on specific fires or research studies in different ecosystems.
