Description

The Ventilation Climate Information System (VCIS) is one of few landscape tools for evaluating and documenting the probability of potential smoke impacts. This project is implementing user-identified improvements to the data and web-access system, creating on-line tutorials for specific tasks such as documentation, planning, and assessment at local to regional scales, and developing lesson plans and workshops to facilitate training.
