Title: Smoke plume behavior - what the data say
Author: Achtemeier, Gary L.; Naeher, Luke
Source: In: EastFIRE Conference Proceedings, Fairfax, Virginia, May 11-13
Description: a comprehensive smoke project, now ongoing for four years, is designed in part to investigate plume behavior from southern prescribed burns with respect to atmospheric stability and to document ground-level smoke concentrations with PM2.5 data from a network of samplers specially constructed for the project. Project management goals are to find ways to increase the number of burn days and/or the number of acres burned on a given day while remaining within air quality guidelines. Project scientific goals are to advance knowledge on how smoke from prescribed burns is distributed in the atmosphere as functions of weather and firing method.
