Important NWS video on smoke from wildfire

Smoke has become increasingly impactful to the communities in our forecast area, and addressing smoke impacts is a significant part of our job here at NWS Medford. We want to invite you to a presentation of some exciting research at the intersection of meteorology and air quality that could potentially help our communities. Rick Graw, Air Quality Program Manager for the USDA Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Region, will be giving a presentation about meteorological and land management influences on wildfire smoke. He will present an analysis of the frequent air pathways which bring wildfire smoke into individual communities in Southern Oregon and Northern California. He will then share a case study which demonstrates how much wildfire smoke could be reduced into a community through fuel treatments within a frequent air pathway.
