Capital Weather Gang Interviews Ryan Stauffer

Ryan Stauffer (UMD) was interviewed by The Washington Post Capital Weather Gang for a December 24 article on poor air quality in the Washington DC Region. Stagnant air from a persistent high pressure system led DC to exceed the National Ambient Air Quality Standard for fine particulate matter on both December 22 and 23.

Earth Expeditions Blog: A New Flame- Airborne Campaign the First to Sample Borneo Fire Smoke in Detail

Earth Expeditions Blog: A Scavenger Hunt for Fire

After nearly a month flying missions out of Boise, Idaho, to sample smoke from big wildfires in the western U.S., the Fire Influence on Regional to Global Environments and Air Quality, or FIREX-AQ, is pulling up stakes and moving to America’s heartland — Salina, Kansas, to be exact.

Earth Expeditions: Plumes Go the Distance

From Alberta, Canada, to Michigan, USA. That’s how far the plumes of smoke traveled in a few short days, from July 21 to July 24. Smoke from wildfires has staying power.

Earth Expeditions: FIre Weather, Pyro Weather

Each morning Amber Soja gets up at 5:00 a.m. to check the fire weather. She’s an associate scientist from the National Institute of Aerospace based at NASA’s Langley Research Center in Virginia, one of the lead forecasters for FIREX-AQ with one of the most important jobs.

Earth Expeditions: A Visit to the National Interagency Fire Center

The FIREX-AQ campaign is flying out of Boise, Idaho. The choice of location was no accident. Boise is also home to the National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC), the nerve center of all major firefighting operations for the United States. Earlier this week, we took a tour.

Earth Expeditions: The Shady Fire, a Deviation From the Plan

“It’s nice to have a flight plan to deviate from,” said DC-8 pilot Tim Vest at the debrief on Thursday night. It was just after 10 p.m. and the DC-8 had just returned from a 6-hour flight over a fire they weren’t planning on visiting.

Earth Expeditions Blog: Laying Down with Smoke in the Valley, an Unexpected Camping Trip

We were ready to fly. We’d heard Tuesday evening that there were two seats open on the DC-8 for the communications team on Wednesday, but as often happens in the field, plans change.

Earth Expeditions Blog: Fires and Smoke with FIREX-AQ: Live from Idaho

NASA, NOAA and university researchers are on an Earth expedition this summer studying fires and their smoke in the U.S. West. On July 23 from Boise, Idaho, the Fire Influence on Regional to Global Environments and Air Quality or FIREX-AQ, kicked off its study of fire smoke, what gases and tiny particulates are in it, and how they evolve and travel over the course of the fire’s lifespan and beyond.

Extreme Air Pollution from DC Fireworks

Ryan Stauffer (614/USRA) was quoted by local media outlets, WTOP Radio and WJLA-ABC7 about the extreme particle pollution from the 4th of July fireworks in DC.
