Title: Air quality climate in the Columbia River Basin.

Author: Ferguson, Sue A.

Date: 1998

Source: Gen. Tech. Rep. PNW-GTR-434. Portland, OR: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Research Station. 23 p. (Quigley, Thomas M., ed. The Interior Columbia Basin Ecosystem Management Project: scientific assessment)

Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

Description: Aspects of climate that influence air quality in the Columbia River basin of the Northwestern United States are described. A few, relatively simple, analytical tools were developed to show the spatial and temporal patterns of mean-monthly mixing heights, precipitation scavenging, upper level and surface trajectory winds, and drought that inhibit pollution uptake. Also, potential changes in air quality from the effects of increasing greenhouse gases are discussed.

Keywords: air quality, climate, air pollution, mixing heights, trajectory winds, pollution trajectories, pollution scavenging, drought, global change, Columbia River basin, fire, smoke
