carpa -- Air Quality Impacts from the Carstens Fire

Posted: 20 Jun 2013 16:42:08
Smoke impacts are much reduced from the Carstens Fire as
containment reaches 60%. 

Communities in Mariposa and Madera counties and Yosemite National
Park were impacted by heavy smoke in the first few days of the
Carstens Fire in the Sierra National Forest.

As a result, Mariposa County and the San Joaquin Valley Air
District requested ARB deploy monitors to measure wildfire smoke
in Bootjack, Oakhurst, Mariposa, and Bass Lake. The highest smoke
concentrations have been occurring from midnight to 6am in all
locations as smoke settles into low laying areas overnight. Day
time averages have been moderate or better.

The California Air Response Planning Alliance (CARPA) was formed
in 2006 by the California Air Resources Board, the US
Environmental Protection Agency, and the Governor's Office of
Emergency Services. CARPA's mission is to provide actionable
incident response information to protect public health and the
environment from the impacts of accident or deliberate releases
of hazardous compounds into the air.
