School(s) : Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences, STEM
Primary PI Name : Dan Jaffe
Email : djaffe@uw.edu
Phone : 425-352-5357
Project/Faculty Website : http://blogs.uw.edu/djaffe
Research Location : UW Bothell
Project Goals : Wildfires are becoming increasingly common in the Western US as global warming results in higher temperatures. Our goal is to understand how wildfires contribute to air pollution, both particulate matter and ozone.
Student Responsibilities : Use satellite and GIS data to track and understand wildfire pollution in the western US.
