Science@Home Wildfires and Crop Burning Smoke w/ Joshua Schwarz
Dr. Schwarz will present: Fires! Smoke! Airplanes! Action! How we're learning about wildfires and crop burning smoke.
Joshua (Shuka) Schwarz is a research scientist in NOAA's Chemical Science Laboratory. His research focuses on:
- In situ measurements of black carbon, bio-aerosol, and total aerosol using airborne instrumentation.
- Particulate detection via aerosolized snow/ice/liquid samples
- Modeling of the optical properties of bare and coated black carbon particles in the context of experimental analysis.
- Engineering and testing of complex measurement systems in the laboratory and field
