National Academies on Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Wildland Fires

National Academies on Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Wildland Fires

 

The National Academies Board on Atmospheric Sciences and Climate presents a workshop about “Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Wildland Fires,” from September 13th to September 15th, 2023. The workshop focuses on our current understanding of wildland fire greenhouse gas (GHG) emission changes, and the subsequent effect on our ability to achieve net-zero GHG emissions targets. Further, the workshop identifies numerous opportunities to improve measurements and model emissions, advance understanding, and inform management to minimize wildland fire emissions. During the event on wildland fires, attendees address best management practices to include in current and future action plans.

About the Board on Atmospheric Sciences and Climate

The issues addressed by BASC are at the forefront of contemporary concerns. Climate change and impacts, global climate models and the implications of their results, air pollution, and severe weather are topics discussed not just by scientists, but in Congress and in headlines every day. Our understanding of these issues directly affects the nation’s environmental policies, energy choices, manufacturing decisions, construction codes, and agricultural methods. In addition, there are implications for human health and emergency management.

About ClimaTwin®

ClimaTwin® is a leading climate risk intelligence solution for infrastructure assets and the built environment.

We empower infrastructure stakeholders to mitigate climate risks and assess adaptation actions across the total asset lifecycle. By connecting complex climate models and infrastructure digital twins, our solution enables engineers, owner-operators, and governments to aggregate, visualize, and analyze disparate datasets, revealing site-specific insights at a hyper-local scale. Benefits include 5-10x near-term returns and lifetime cost-avoidance by mitigating risks to systems, services, and societies.
