Evaluation of Smoke Models and Sensitivity Analysis for Determining their Emission Related Uncertainties: Journal Article

This research project assessed the accuracy of three different smoke models (CALPUFF, DAYSMOKE, and CMAQ) at predicting PM2.5 emissions from prescrubed burn and wildfire events in the southeastern United States. Past fire events were modeled, and models were compared to observed data from the actual events.
