Webinar - Prescribed Fire Smoke and Air Quality- A Case Study from the Flint Hills of Kansas

Description

Presented by Gina Grier, Josh Tapp: EPA Region 7; Tom Gross, Doug Watson: Kansas Dept. of Health and Environment; Carol Blocksome: Kansas State University

Fire is frequently applied to many types of ecosystems for land management purposes. Smoke components from these prescribed burns can contribute to exceedances of air quality standards. Impaired air quality can lead to additional regulation of activities that contribute to air pollution, including prescribed burning. In this webinar key players in the development of the Kansas smoke management plan and associated smoke management tools will outline their experiences, offering insights to land managers in other regions as to what has worked in Kansas.

This webinar brought to you by the Oak Woodlands and Forests Fire Science Consortium and Great Plains Fire Science Exchange.
