Tracking the Long-Term Cost of Wildfire Emissions (ConE)

A collaboration of faculty were awarded a University of Maryland Council on the Environment seed grant initiative (Trouve/Gollner/Ide/Ellicott). The effort aims to quantify wildfire pollutant/aerosol emissions using simulations, data assimilation and satellite observations. Read More
