Title: Technically Advanced Smoke Evaluation Tools (TASET): Needs Assessment and Feasibility Investigation

Project Proposal Abstract: If approved, we will deliver to the Joint Fire Science Project a needs analysis and feasibility plan for a national smoke management model including consideration of the current state of the science and emerging technologies (anticipated to be available in three to five years) for the following technologies to predict particle size range, chemical and physical source characteristics of emissions from prescribed fire in all appropriate fuel and fire types; technologies to predict meteorological conditions at scales from the immediate vicinity of the fire up to the atmospheric mesoscale (up to 1000 km from the fire); technologies to predict smoke dispersion, including smoke location, timing and amounts at sensitive points in the vicinity of the fire; technologies to integrate all of these smoke management tools into an operational smoke management model and to communicate its results for fire managers use in operationally time frames; economics of and methodologies for involving information service providers, e.g. public and not-for-profit private sector emergency information systems, in the distribution of L,resultant products. This analysis will be presented in the form of a business plan, that is it will include the identification of public and private investment costs as well as potential public and private benefits and profitability of implementing, on a national basis, an operational system for smoke modeling.
