"The Future is Smoky" Panel Discussion
Virtual panel Discussion: Thursday, December 14, 2023, from 11am-12:30pm ET.
Description: With increasing wildfire activity due to changes in climate, smoke will likely become more prevalent and continue to have an effect on society. Earlier this year, smoke from Canada wildfires lowered air quality in the eastern U.S. to its worst levels in recorded history. As the climate heats up and creates drier conditions, smoky skies will grow increasingly common. Health concerns and prescribed burning actions needed to restore functioning ecosystems will be impacted by already smoky conditions across the country. Panelists include research meteorologists, air quality experts, and fire practitioners. Together, they will explore how we can address and adapt to a smoky future.
This virtual event is hosted by the Fueling Collaboration Panel Discussion Series, which connects fire managers and researchers. Panelists will include Eric Evenson (Moderator), Dr. Megan Johnson, Dr. Jay Charney, Dr. Scott Goodrick, and Trent Wickman.
