Title: Using radiocarbon measurements of PM2.5 to understand fuel consumption in California wildfires

Abstract: This fall, I chased wildfires around California to collect PM2.5 (fine particulate matter) and measure greenhouse gas concentrations in smoke using UCR's mobile lab. In my Half-Baked seminar, I'll be discussing the adventures of fieldwork in California's forests during the fire season, some of the data we collected, and preliminary results from analyses of the Caldor and KNP Complex Fires.
