Regional Climate: Current Research

Climate, Air Quality and Wildfire



In this project, we are using an ensemble modeling approach that will address the impacts and uncertainties related to the effects of global change on regional air quality in the U.S. These next steps include:


Washington State University, National Center for Atmospheric Research, USDA Forest Service, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, Colorado State University.
