  • CMAQ produced a realistic simulation of this large-scale fire event, capturing the smoke coverage and the daily evolution of smoke impacts.
  • Modeled PM2.5 concentration fields have been provided to HAQAST project partners for further analyses, including fusion with satellite aerosol optical depth (AOD) data and health impact analyses. Updates are posted on HAQAST web site.
  • The air quality simulation of 2018 California wildfires is on-going.
