Studying wildfires by flying directly through the smoke

We already have the Hurricane Hunters, now make room for the Wildfire Hunters

As the 2018 wildfire season comes into full swing, scientists are participating in the first of many field experiments to measure and analyze the wildfire smoke that covers a significant portion of the United States each year. This project, called the Western Wildfire Experiment for Cloud Chemistry, Aerosol Absorption and Nitrogen (WE-CAN), will conduct 15 to 20 smoke-observation flights between late July and August out of Boise, Idaho.
