This thesis describes a means of comparing the potential smoke impacts from prescribed burning versus the possible smoke impacts of a wildfire as if it had occurred in the same given area. The methodology of evaluating these impacts is based on the...

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...

The impact of smoke from forest burning on air quality is a threat to the use of prescribed fire to manage woodlands in the eastern United States. Population shifts from urban centers to the wildland/urban interface have increased human exposures 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-...

Of Georgia's 37 million acres, 24.8 million acres are forestland. On an average, 1.2 million acres are prescribed burned each year. Georgia faces two main challenges with their prescribed fire program, air quality and urban sprawl. These two will...

Prescribed burning is a large aerosol source in the southeastern United States. Its air quality impact is investigated using 3-D model simulations and analysis of ground and satellite observations. Fire emissions for 2002 are calculated based on a...

Biomass burning is an important primary source of particles containing biomarker compounds, which are introduced into smoke primarily by direct volatilization/steam stripping and by thermal alteration based on combustion conditions. This study presents...
