Title: Fire and Smoke Model Evaluation Experiment (FASMEE) Phase 1

Project Proposal Abstract: This project will develop and prioritize the observations needed to perform this task, bring teams of modelers and observational specialists in various disciplines on board under separate funding, and coordinate these teams to create and validate a detailed study plan, including the needed logistical, action, data management, and safety plans for a successful field campaign. Initial work will be focused on identifying potential burn sites, detailing the observations most useful to model developers, and creating a set of open Funding Opportunity Notices to identify the modeling and observational discipline teams. Once the teams have been identified through a peer review proposal process, work will shift to developing a detailed study plan that includes a vetted experimental design, and working with potential sites to determine logistics and create a complete burn plan and Incident Action Plan,including a full safety plan and other core components.
