The AirFire Team is continuing to support wildfire incidents throughout the country.
Most recently, AirFire has been doing smoke dispersion modeling in support of the Eastern Washington wildfires. AirFire is also continuing to provide modeling support to wildfires in Idaho. The models are being run at a higher resolution over Washington and Idaho than elsewhere in the US, with different fire sizes to provide a “best guess” and “worst case” scenario. AirFire Team members are providing model analysis to assist federal, state, and local agencies in their efforts to communicate to the public health impacts from the smoke from the fires.
