Forest & Fire Learning Series: The Chemistry of Wildfire Smoke
6:00pm / Mountain Studies Institute Facebook page and YouTube channel
In preparation for Wildfire Awareness Month beginning in May, Mountain Studies Institute is gearing up for its 4th annual Forest & Fire Learning Series that will take place every Thursday in April 6-7pm. This livestream e-vent will feature a Q&A session following presentations intended to educate and engage our community on a variety of topics that include wildfire management, fire-adapted communities, the connection between wildfires and water, adaptations to the challenges of 2020, the chemistry of wildfire smoke and air quality, seasonal outlooks for 2021, and personal stories of living with fire.    The 4th installment in the 5-part Learning Series will feature Dr. Gilman and her research on the air quality impacts of wildfire smoke. Dr. Gilman will describe her work making detailed chemical measurements of biomass burning from the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) lab in Boulder, the Missoula Fire Sciences Laboratory, and aboard the NASA DC-8 research aircraft as it flew through smoke plumes in the western and southeastern U.S. We will then explore with her the chemistry of wildfires and how its emissions impact air quality and climate.    SPEAKER   - Jessica Gilman, Ph.D.: Research Chemist, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration    We invite you to join the conversation, ask questions, and help to inform a community approach to living with fire!    Photo: Michael Remke
Wildness & America
6:00pm / Durango Public Library
Wilderness in America has been an idea, an ideal, and finally it became a law in 1964 with passage of the Wilderness Act which preserves millions of acres of land in its primitive state. Dr. Gulliford will delve into our county's complex relationship with wild lands, and he will also highlight our local wilderness- The Weminuche.   Email darcy@prlibrary.org for Zoom login
