Wildfire Smoke

Predicting smoke movement and preventing smoke health effects remains an unsolved problem in the U.S.  

The CSU Partnership for Air Quality, Climate, and Health (PACH) is working to help communities become resilient to the impact of wildfire smoke.  Our goal is to develop a national wildfire smoke health warning system to protect people from this growing public health threat.
