    Description

    Abstract. A 5-year summary of accomplishments, current activities, and planned actions for fire research project SE-2110 are presented. Areas of discussion center on: (1) characterization of wildland smoke, and (2) fuel, fire, and emission relationships. Characterization summaries include physical and chemical properties of smoke, smoke from burning pesticide-treated forest fuels, and smoke tracers. Reducing smoke from smoldering combustion, understanding moisture relationships in forest fuels, and developing remote sensing methods for fire behavior and effects offer opportunities for the wildland fire manager to expand prescribed burning programs while minimizing detrimental environmental effects.
