Wildfires emit a complex array of trace gases and particulate matter. In addition to uncertainties about what and in what amounts are emitted by wildfires of differing fuel type or intensity, are uncertainties related to the chemical transformations that occur in the wildfire smoke once in the atmosphere. Hear about airborne research studies of wildfire smoke chemistry and composition that address the sources and transformations of a key set of reactive nitrogen oxides which influence the formation of secondary pollutants such as ozone and particulate matter downwind of fires.

Mandatory attendance for CHEM 390, 490, 495, 496, 650 students.
