Title: International Symposium Forest Fires and Air Quality Issues

Project Proposal Abstract: Presenting state-of-science information and discussion of broadly defined air pollution and forest fire issues. Among others, the following topics will be discussed: effects of forest fires on air quality in the remote and urban-wildland interface forests; effects of forest fires on air quality of nearby urban communities; management and ecological factors predisposing forest to fires (including catastrophic one as those in southern California in 2003); remote sensing of fire events and smoke/air pollution plumes; effects of climate change on probability of fire occurrence; models describing genetation of air pollutants such as ozone and particulate matter down-wind from fires; effects of fires on water quality of mountain watersheds; effects of fires on nitrogen and carbon cycling (including effects on C resources); ecological changes in forest caused by fires. The meeting will result in in publication of a peer-reviewed volume (Elsevier Publishing Company).
