    A new book is in press that will further add to the database of information about effects of vegetation fire on air pollution and tropospheric ozone in particular (A. Bytnerowicz, M. Arbaugh, A. Riebau and C. Andersen (eds), Wildland Fires and Air Pollution, Elsevier, In Press.) Photochemistry of Ozone Production in Smoke Plumes. Wildland fires are a source of polluting emissions into the atmosphere whose main origin is anthropogenic, as is amply demonstrated by causality studies and statistics. Air pollution by such disturbance is due to combustion of forest biomass that mainly generates CO2 and H2O, and other inorganic and organic gases, and particles.

The interaction between smoke and air pollution creates a public health challenge. Fuels treatments proposed for National Forests are intended to reduce fuel accumulations and wildfire frequency and severity, as well as to protect property located in the wild land-urban interface.

If fuels treatment are not conducted, however, then wild land fires become more severe and frequent causing worse public health and wellfare effects.

This summary document is intended for resource managers About Wildland Fire. A wildland fire is any non-structure fire that occurs in forests, scrublands, grasslands, and marshlands.

There can be two types of wildland fires: wildfires (unplanned), and prescribed. A better understanding of air pollution and smoke interactions is needed in order to protect the public health. This book offers such an understanding and examines wide-scale monitoring efforts, and development of models predicting spatial and temporal distribution of air pollution and smoke resulting from forests fires and other sources.

The chapters in Section III of this book provide an overview of how components of climate change, including air pollution, are likely to interact with fire in modifying key ecosystem processes, whether those processes were demographic, successional, or elemental by: 2.

Smoke plumes from agricultural burning and wildland fires can be a source of air pollution that may have adverse impacts on human health.

Aerosol Index. Wildland Fire Research: Health Effects Research. Larger and more intense wildfires are creating the potential for greater smoke production and chronic exposures in the U.S., particularly in the West.

Wildfires increase air pollution in surrounding areas and can affect regional air quality. Wildfire smoke is a mix of gases and fine particles from burning trees and plants, buildings, and other material. Wildfire smoke can make anyone sick, but people with asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), or heart disease pdf icon, and children pdf icon external icon, pregnant women, and responders are especially at risk.

Wildfires are a source of an especially problematic type of air pollutant known as PM (“particulate matter” less than microns in diameter), which can become lodged in lungs and cause or exacerbate a wide array of health problems such as asthma and heart disease.
