The Impact of Forest Fires on Washington Air Quality

Forest fires have a significant impact on the Air Quality Index (AQI). Forest fires release large amounts of particulate matter into the air, which can have harmful effects on human health. Forest fires also produce carbon monoxide, which is harmful when inhaled in high concentrations. Forest fires can also release other pollutants, such as sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs), depending on the composition of the vegetation being burned. These pollutants can further deteriorate air quality and contribute to an increased AQI.
