Spatial and temporal estimates of population exposure to wildfire smoke during the Washington State 2012 wildfire season using blended model, satellite, and in-situ data: process data and code archive
In the western U.S., smoke from wild and prescribed fires can severely degrade air quality. Due to changes in climate and land-management, wildfires have increased in frequency and severity, and this trend is expected to continue. Consequently, wildfires are expected to become an increasingly important source of air pollutants in the western U.S. Hence, there is a need to develop a quantitative understanding of wildfire-smoke-specific health effects. A necessary step in this process is to determine who was exposed to wildfire smoke, the concentration of the smoke during exposure, and the duration ...
