Plume rise is the height smoke plumes can reach. This information is needed by air quality models such as the Community Multiscale Air Quality (CMAQ) model to simulate physical and chemical processes of point-source fire emissions. This study seeks to...

Characterization of the true extent of the effects of smoke from prescribed fires and wildland fires on ambient air quality is incomplete due to the deficiency of air quality monitoring sites in rural areas. Also, particulate standards are based on 24-...

Forest fires remain a devastating phenomenon in the tropics that not only affect forest structure and biodiversity, but also contribute significantly to atmospheric CO2. Fire used to be extremely rare in tropical forests, leaving ample time for forests...
