MODIS Airborne Simulator (MAS)

CAMPAIGN SUMMARY INFORMATION

Fire Influence on Regional to Global Environments Experiment - Air Quality
Dates: 2 - 21 August, 2019
Location: Western USA
eMAS Principal Investigator: Dr. Steven Platnick (NASA GSFC)
Configuration: 38 Channel
Additional Sensors: AirMSPI / AVIRIS / SHIS / CPL / GCAS / NAST-I / HyTES / DC-8 Payload
Objective: The overarching objective of FIREX-AQ is to provide measurements of trace gas and aerosol emissions for wildfires and prescribed fires in great detail, relate them to fuel and fire conditions at the point of emission, characterize the conditions relating to plume rise, follow plumes downwind to understand chemical transformation and air quality impacts, and assess the efficacy of satellite detections for estimating the emissions from sampled fires.
