Title: National Wildfire Air Quality Tools Training Workshop

Project Proposal Abstract: We propose to hold a workshop to train approximately ten smoke modeling specialists who would be available thereafter to support wildland fire incidents on a regional scale, similar to the role the AirFire Team played for the 2011 fires in the Southwestern US. The workshop will present available smoke forecasting and air quality tools, including their appropriate uses, strengths, and limitations, followed by presentation and discussion on how to set up a coordinated communication network disseminate information to interested parties and the public. Target attendeesare individuals in land management agencies or federal or state air quality management agencies who are already familiar with the meteorological and air quality concepts behind smoke models. Workshop presenters will be individuals who have worked extensively with the tools and have experience in this sort of information delivery system.
