The Chemistry of Urban Wildfires: Committee Meeting 4 Day 2

October 28, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm EDT

Virtual Event Virtual Event

Destructive fires at the wildland-urban interface (WUI) have burned thousands of acres of residential space in recent years. This study will convene experts to examine the chemical processes that occur during urban wildfires, the identity of resulting chemicals, and what is known about human exposure pathways. The committee will also identify challenges in data collection and potential knowledge gaps. The final report will provide decision-makers with recommendations for additonal chemistry research needed to inform their work to mitigate the adverse chemical impacts of wildfires at the WUI.

Meeting 4 of the Committee will take place over several non-consecutive days:

  • Oct 26 10:00 – 2:00PM: Meeting 4 Day 1
  • Oct 28 11:00 – 3:00PM: Meeting 4 Day 2
  • Nov 2 10:00 – 2:00PM: Meeting 4 Day 3
