The research aims to characterize the physical and chemical properties of forest fire smoke and its impact on the Artic. Three aircraft (CT-133 jet, Dehavilland Sea Heron and Dehavilland Twin Otter) based out of Yellowknife, equipped with standard scientific atmospheric chemistry sampling instrumentation, will be used to sample smoke while airborne. Sampling will take place opportunistically as fi...
