Joshua Schwarz will present: Fires! Smoke! Airplanes! Action! How We're Learning About Wildfires and Crop Burning Smoke.

Joshua (Shuka) Schwarz is a research scientist in NOAA's Chemical Science Laboratory. His research focuses on:

  • In situ measurements of black carbon, bio-aerosol, and total aerosol using airborne instrumentation.
  • Particulate detection via aerosolized snow/ice/liquid samples
  • Modeling of the optical properties of bare and coated black carbon particles in the context of experimental analysis.
  • Engineering and testing of complex measurement systems in the laboratory and field

This series is intended to connect middle and high school students and classrooms that are now in the virtual/remote learning landscape with scientists. Each webinar features a 10-15 minute presentation by a scientists about how they got into science, what they do as a scientist, and what it is that they research, followed by 10-15 minutes of live Q&A.

These webinars will be held weekly on Tuesdays at 1:00pm MT during the fall semester. For the full schedule go to our website, and for the exciting addition of monthly presentations in Spanish.
