Description

Presentation on the background of the proposed research plan recently funded by a JFSP grant. His research is focused on determining the role of composition and particle size on the toxicity of wildfire emissions. Dr. Gilmour presented a state of the art system designed to entrain or collect smoke from biomass combustion and deliver it to rodents to determine differential toxicity between fuel types.
