“BlueSky” modelling for North America
BlueSky is a software framework that consists of data and models of fuel consumption, emissions, fire, weather, and dispersion. These are linked together into a single system that produces forecasts of hourly ground-level concentrations of PM2.5 from wildfires up to 48 hours into the future. Twice per day, an animation is published that shows the forecast (or predicted) movement of smoke plumes and the corresponding 1-hour PM2.5 concentrations.
