The project titled "Coordination, Evaluation and Ensemble Prediction of Multiple Atmospheric Composition Forecasts in Support of the FIREChem Campaign" led by Professor Saide jointly with national and international orgnizations was selected for funding by NASA. This project will bring together multiple forecasting systems to provide guidance during flight planning of the upcoming FIREX-AQ campign, a joint NOAA/NASA field program for summer 2019. Also, it will help improve our understanding of model skill when predicting biomass burning events and improve it looking to the future.
