American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting

9-13 December 2019, San Francisco, California, USA

Session: The Changing Face of Wildfires and Effects on Human Health

Call for Abstracts
Deadline: 31 July 019

Wildfire behavior is changing as climate extremes combine with decades of fire suppression and forest management activities to alter fuel loads. In addition, urban development and rapid sub-urban sprawl have complicated the wildland-urban interface, bringing people and fire together in ways that risk property, infrastructure, and health. In this session, we bring together experts in fire behavior, fire modeling, atmospheric chemistry, and human health to explore how wildfires in natural and managed systems are changing in response to climate extremes. In particular, this session invites abstracts on 1) fire regime variability and climate-related drivers, 2) fire behavior and the suitability of existing fire spread models to represent changing conditions, 3) trace-gas emissions and their atmospheric chemistry and transport, and 4) public health impacts via direct and indirect fire and emission processes. 

Invited Speakers include:

Christine Wiedinmyer (CIRES, NCAR)
Yang Chen (University of California Irvine)
