Summary

Value of integrating satellite and ground-based aerosol observations Long-range transport of smoke aerosols led to U.S. air quality impacts Even common fires emit smoke aerosols that degrade air quality We synthesize multiple ground-based and satellite measurements to track the physical and chemical evolution of biomass burning smoke plumes transported from western Canada to the northeastern U.S. This multiple data set case study is an advantageous methodology compared with using individual or small groups of data sets, each with their own limitations. The case study analyzed is a Canadian boreal forest fire event on July 4, 2006 with carbonaceous aerosol smoke emission magnitudes comparable to those during the summer fire seasons [...]
