Zoom: Smoke is NOT Just Smoke
Jan 20 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

Smoke has always been an important issue in wildland fire, but recent fire seasons have driven home the point even more across the eastern US.  Whether it’s the western US and Canadian wildfire smoke or smoke from a local controlled burn, what are the messages we should be communicating?  What are the tools that can help us assess impacts?  Attend this session to hear about the latest in smoke science and management.

Zoom: Fire and the Wildland Urban Interface in the Eastern US
Feb 17 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

Notions of fire and the wildland urban interface often bring to mind scenes from the western United States, where catastrophic wildfires have led to catastrophic losses. In contrast, mapping efforts have found that the vast majority of the WUI acres can be found in the eastern United States. This panel will talk about how wildfire, prescribed fire, and climate change intersect in the WUI of the east.
