The primary purpose of the Smoke Management Program (SMP) is to mitigate the effects of smoke from forestry related prescribed burning on Smoke Sensitive Areas (SSAs). The primary impetus is the Clean Air Act of 1970 and subsequent amendments in 1977...

In Northern Thailand, wildland fire during cold period releases large amounts of smoke and fine particles into the atmosphere. The fine particles include several persistent organic compounds such as PAHs. In this study, PM2.5-bound PAH concentrations...

Peat fires in Southeast Asia have become a major annual source of trace gases and particles to the regional–global atmosphere. The assessment of their influence on atmospheric chemistry, climate, air quality, and health has been uncertain partly due to...

Connections between wildfires and modes of variability in climate are sought as a means for predicting fire activity on interannual to multi-decadal timescales. Several fire drivers, such as temperature and local drought index, have been shown to vary...
