Resource Brief Description
Advanced Computing Facilities High-performance computing systems are used to model fire spread, fire danger, and air quality to support fire operations and advance scientific understanding of fire.
Fire Atmosphere Sampling System Fire Atmospheric Sampling System packages are deployed during fires to sample smoke emissions.
Gas Chromatograghy Lab Smoke samples collected during fires are analyzed in the Gas Chromatography Laboratory.
Lidar A lidar scanning system is used to monitor atmospheric properties of smoke plumes during fires.
Mobile Instrument Vehicle Ground-based instruments are deployed from the mobile instrument vehicle to fires to acquire measurements for smoke plume dynamics, smoke aerosol distribution, and meteorological conditions.
Sun Photometer Sun photometers are used to study air quality by measuring atmospheric aerosols.
Thermal Imaging

Thermal imaging cameras are used to study heat energy transfer as fires progress.

Wind Tunnel and Combustion Lab The Wind Tunnel and Combustion Laboratory is used to conduct burning experiments in a controlled environment under varying temperature, humidity, and wind.
