System and data requirements session overview
System and Data Requirements Session Overview

  • Emissions Estimation (Janice Peterson)

  • Fire Emissions Inventories (Sam Sandberg)

  • Fire Activity Tracking (Mike Hilbruner)

  • Monitoring (Jim Russell)

  • F-CAMMS Modeling Consortia's (Doug Fox)

  • BlueSky (Sue Ferguson)

  • Technology Transfer Session



Wildfire can emit as muchPM2.5 in a day as the largest point orhighest area source (county total) does in a year


Estimating emissions
Estimating Emissions

  • Basic Data Requirements

    • Area Burned

    • Fuel Load

    • Fuel Consumption

    • Emission Factor

Biscuit fire example acres
Biscuit Fire Example - Acres

  • Biscuit Fire

    • 499,965 acres

  • PM2.5 Emissions

    • 115,492 tons


Acres burned acres black
Acres Burned – Acres Black

  • Biscuit Fire

    • 499,965 acres

    • 99,993 unburned or very low severity

  • PM2.5 Emissions

    • 92,394 tons


Biscuit fire severity
Biscuit Fire Severity

  • 499,965 acres

    • 99,993 unburned or very low

    • 204,986 low

    • 114,992 moderate

    • 79,994 high



Data needs for emissions estimation wildfire and rx fire
Data Needs for Emissions Estimation – Wildfire and Rx Fire

  • Acres (*systematic overestimation?)

    • Acres black (reported or modeled)

      • Acres by severity

  • Fuel Type Maps

    • Reported fuel loading

      • Fuel loading by size class

  • Fuel moisture mapping

    • Reported fuel moisture

      • Reported fuel consumption




Dispersion modeling promises vs realities
Dispersion Modeling: Promises vs. Realities


Dispersion modeling accuracy
Dispersion Modeling Accuracy

  • Model sophistication (EPA certification)

  • Meteorology

  • Ignition Duration

  • Fuel Moisture

  • Flaming vs. Smoldering Consumption

  • Fuel Loading

  • ??


Monitoring
Monitoring

  • Accurate for impacts.

  • Expensive, time consuming, difficult.

  • What is our responsibility?

    • Wildfire

    • Rx Fire

      • Compliance

      • Reality vs. perception

      • Nuisance smoke
