Wildfire Emissions of Atmospheric Pollutants: Estimates for the 2000s and Impacts of 2000s-2050s Global Environmental Change
Tuesday, November 20, 2018
Speaker: Aditya Kumar, Environmental Engineering, Michigan Technological University, Houghton, MI Wildfires are an important source of atmospheric pollutants that influence atmospheric chemistry, the Earth’s climate and contribute to remote ecosystem contamination. Future global environmental change could result in major changes in wildfire emissions by altering fuel type/availability and meteorological conditions. This talk presents results from several modeling studies.
