Final Report for SERDP Project RC-1649: Advanced Chemical Measurements of Smoke from DoD-prescribed Burns
In a collaboration with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Wildland Fire Sensor Challenge was conducted to solicit and evaluate next-generation air measurement technology in pursuit of an easy to deploy, reliable, and accurate on-demand smoke monitoring network. During the initial phase of the challenge, three prototype systems were identified for further development and testing. Second generation sensors will be evaluated by the USFS/EPA research team in spring 2019.
This project seeks to address two key scientific questions: (1) Are emission factors for CO2, CO, CH4, NOX, PM2.5, and BC significantly dependent on either fuel moisture or fuel bed structure? and (2) Can fuel moisture and fuel bed structure serve as independent variables for empirical models that reliably predict these emission factors?
Wildland fires emit a substantial amount of atmospheric pollutants including carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon monoxide (CO), methane (CH4), non-methane organic compounds (NMOC), nitrogen oxides (NOX), fine particulate matter (PM2.5), and black carbon (BC). These emissions have major impacts on regional air quality and global climate. In addition to being primary pollutants, the photochemical processing of NOX and NMOC leads to the formation of ozone (O3) and secondary PM2.5.
