The August Complex Fire and others this fire season have been sending far-reaching plumes of wildfire smoke into the atmosphere that worsen air quality in California and beyond. Predicting where that smoke will travel and how bad the air will be downwind is a challenge, but Earth-observing satellites can help.

The year 2020 will be remembered for being a very trying year and western wildfires have just added to the year's woes.

Terra Cloud Cover Data Used as Comparison Data for Superparameterization Model

A paper appearing recently in EOS shows that Terra data is continually being used to test new modeling processes. In this study, Terra cloud top height data was used as a tool to compare the results of the superparamertization model to data from a day in April, 2012 over the Netherlands. The superparameterization model produced results that more accurately depicted the cloud height data from Terra, than the standard parameterized version of OpenIFS.
