Smoke 建模 and Analysis

Use modeling and data science to simulate and assess 烟 emissions and air quality impacts from wildfires and prescribed fires.

Smoke Impact Analysis

Quantify 烟 emissions (e.g., fine particulate matter and greenhouse gases) and model air quality impacts from local to national scales for past, 当前的, and future scenarios to inform planning and 管理 decisions.

Exposure Assessment

Leverage measured and simulated air quality data to assess exposures to wildland fire 烟 in health and air quality studies.

Exceptional Events Support

Prepare wildfire particulate matter and ozone exceptional event demonstrations that meet EPA’s requirements. Sonoma Technology develops exceptional event demonstrations for clients across the country.


Prepare your department and the public for the dangers of wildfires with our planning services.

Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP)

Leverage our technical expertise to develop a plan that reflects your district's unique vegetation, 地形, 天气, 土地利用. We can help you address your community’s needs and concerns.

Fire Hazard and Risk Assessment

Assess the wildfire threat to your community holistically using data- and model-driven insights on fire regime, 风险, 建筑环境, and 天气 patterns.

Fuels Treatment Assessment

Evaluate the effectiveness and benefits of fuels treatments on project and landscape scales with fuel, 火行为, and forest growth models.
