- There is an upcoming NSF-funded atmospheric science research project to study the chemistry of wildfire smoke plumes called the Western Wildfire Experiment for Cloud Chemistry, Aerosol Absorption and Nitrogen, or WE-CAN project, and will be based in Boise from 22 July – 31 August, 2018. WE-CAN will use the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF)/National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) C-130 research aircraft, essentially a flying laboratory, to systematically identify and quantify the emissions from western wildfires and to understand how smoke plumes evolve over the first 24-hours after emission. The data collected during WE-CAN will play a vital role in improving our ability to predict storms and rainfall in smoke-filled environments. Additionally, there will be a public open house to visit two research aircraft at the Boise Airport on Saturday, 11 August from 10:00 – 1:00 pm. This is a free, family-friendly event.
