Clarifying the Chemistry of Wildfire Smoke

Friday, August 10, 2018, 1:00 AM - 2:30 AM

Join Us For a Science Presentation About Wildfire Smoke Research

Enjoy an engaging presentation by a research scientist who is part of a team currently studying western wildfire smoke plumes. The research project is funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) and is based in Boise, Idaho from 22 July - 31 August. The research project called the Western Wildfire Experiment for Cloud Chemistry, Aerosol Absorption, and Nitrogen (WE-CAN), will conduct approximately 16 research flights to collect data on aerosols, cloud particles, trace gases, and radiation to characterize the emissions and first day of evolution of western U.S. wildfire smoke plumes.

» Discover the scientific motivation to study wildfire smoke.
» Ask questions to the mission scientists and other project staff.
» Understand the societal benefits of studying wildfire smoke plumes.
» Learn about the research aircraft and state-of-the-art instrumentation used in the study.
