The Smoke and Emissions Portal is the result of collaborative efforts between the National Wildfire Coordinating Group's (NWCG) Smoke Committee, The University of Idaho, and the Fire Research and Management Exchange System (FRAMES). This site is divided into three areas: Educational Resources, Smoke Management Guide, and Perceptions.
Educational Resources features the Smoke Management and Air Quality for Land Managers including Smokepedia and access to case studies. Also available here are recordings from the 2008-2009 "Effective Communication for Smoke Management in a Changing Air Quality Environment" workshops, and the Air Quality Library.
Learn about ongoing revisions of the 2001 Smoke Management Guide for Prescribed and Wildland Fire.
Information and webinars focused on public perception of wildland fire and smoke. This area includes a webinar hosted by the NWCG Smoke Committee summarizing current research on social issues related to smoke.
