A JFSP Fire Science Exchange Network
Bringing People Together & Sharing Knowledge in the Northern Rockies

This topic covers publications that monitor smoke emissions over time or report on methods to monitor the amount of emissions from various types of burning over time.  Within this topic, we have also placed the guides for public health officials and early warning fire detection systems that are being developed because there are no other topics that these topics to fit within.  In general, publications on methods for monitoring smoke, or results obtained on emissions over time, are the most applicable subjects for this topic.
