- Fuel, Smoke, and Prescribed Fire in the Ouachita Mountains (2016)
- Prescribed burning is a key tool in restoration and management of native stands of southern pines in the southern U.S., but the smoke produced by prescribed fires can be challenging to manage. Computer models are used to simulate the effects of prescribed burning, and research is currently underway to more accurately predict the smoke that prescribed fires produce.
