  • Daily Smoke Coordination Conference Call:

  • Redding and Riverside Predictive Services

  • co-host a Conference call at 1300 local time.

  • Dial: 1-877-874-5440 Passcode: 357238

  • These calls are held daily from spring burning season through the fall burning season, and as needed in winter.

  • Participants include CARB, the Air districts, burners, and GACC meteorologists from the 2 Predictive Services Units.

  • These have proven to be an excellent forum to discuss ongoing burns, new burns planned, air quality issues, marginal burn days, fuel loadings, etc.

Daily Smoke Management Call/Information Transfer Process

  • Serves as a clearinghouse for information

  • Naturally Ignited Fires

  • Educational Portal

  • Establishes Relationships

  • Strengthens agencies commitments to cooperate and makes for a more efficient smoke management program

V 024 lack of comprehensive air quality information

V-024 “Lack of Comprehensive Air Quality Information”

Recommendations:

  • Real time smoke/PM2.5 monitoring: At least 3 additional BAMs and 3 EBAMs are needed. Could develop an interagency collaborative plan, which may include Tahoe Basin researchers, to support and implement a comprehensive monitoring network in the basin.

  • Web Cams: A review of existing web cam coverage in the basin with a plan to develop and supplement the existing government and commercial network to gain adequate coverage.

  • Smoke modeling via BlueSky / CANSAC: Recommend the California and Nevada Smoke and Air Committee (CANSAC) evaluate the specific needs associated with providing the Lake Tahoe Basin with BlueSky smoke modeling and MM5 weather forecasts with a special high resolution domain for the Basin.

  • Prescribed Fire Information Reporting System (PFIRS): The Prescribed Fire Information Reporting System (PFIRS) is under the management of the California Air Resources Board (CARB). Nevada has agreed to use PFIRS on a trial basis for evaluation purposes. To fully benefit PFIRS and Blue Sky capabilities, PFIRS data will be linked to Blue Sky products.

Intensity of aq impacts

INTENSITY OF AQ IMPACTS

  • MAGNITUDE AND DURATION

    • Some fires were associated with very few “moderate” exceedances over a long time period, some “large magnitude” exceedances over a very short time.

  • Duration of all events with over 50% intensity was under 100 hrs (~ 4 days)

  • Proximity of monitor to the fire contributes to this intensity…basically the “very unhealthy” and “unhealthy” events at 100% intensity mean you are in the plume)
