Science Seminar March, 21 | 1PM ET: Climate-Driven Changes in Land Management Practices and Wildland Fire Smoke in the Southeast

Climate-Driven Changes in Land Management Practices and Wildland Fire Smoke in the Southeast

March 21, 2024 | 1PM ET

We examined the respective air quality impacts from prescribed fire and wildfire in the Southeastern US, the populations impacted, and how wildland fire smoke concentrations could change due to climate-driven changes in regional fire activity. We simulated current wildland fire smoke (PM2.5) concentrations and possible climate-driven changes over the span of a year with a chemical transport model using projected changes in wildfire burned area, projections of meteorological windows for prescribed burning, and survey responses from burners in the Southeast.
