Prescribed fires, smoke exposure, and hospital utilization among heart failure patients


By: H. Raab*, J. Moyer*, S. Afrin n, F. Garcia-Menendez n & C. Ward-Caviness*

author keywords: Prescribed fires; Smoke exposure; Hospitalizations; Heart failure
TL;DR: Ass associations between residing near a prescribed fire, wildfire smoke exposure, and heart failure patients’ hospital utilization are investigated and area-level smoke exposure driven by wildfires is positively associated with hospital utilization but not proximity to prescribed fires.

Application and evaluation of a low-cost PM sensor and data fusion with CMAQ simulations to quantify the impacts of prescribed burning on air quality in Southwestern Georgia, USA


MeSH headings : Air Pollutants / analysis; Air Pollution / analysis; Environmental Monitoring; Georgia; Humans; Particulate Matter / analysis
TL;DR: The results show that the severe impact of PB on local air quality and public health may be missed due to the dearth of regulatory monitoring sites, and low-cost PM sensors can be used as a supplemental measurement tool and provide useful spatial and temporal information for integration with air quality model simulations.

Potential impacts of prescribed fire smoke on public health and socially vulnerable populations in a Southeastern US state


By: S. Afrin n & F. Garcia-Menendez n

author keywords: Prescribed fire; Smoke impacts; Social vulnerability
MeSH headings : Aged; Air Pollutants / analysis; Ecosystem; Fires; Georgia / epidemiology; Humans; Public Health; Vulnerable Populations
TL;DR: The analysis identifies spatial clusters of burning activity in the state and finds that areas with intense prescribed fire have levels of social vulnerability that are over 25% higher than the state average, and suggests that the impacts of burning in Georgia can potentially include hundreds of annual morbidity and mortality cases associated with smoke pollution.

Reliability and financial feasibility assessment of a community rainwater harvesting system considering precipitation variability due to climate change


By: M. Islam n, S. Afrin n, M. Tarek* & M. Rahman*

author keywords: Community rainwater harvesting; Climate change; Reliability; Financial feasibility
MeSH headings : Bangladesh; Climate Change; Conservation of Natural Resources; Feasibility Studies; Rain; Reproducibility of Results; Water Supply
TL;DR: A nomograph incorporating interactive factors of RWH would ease decision making by the policymakers regarding the implementation of community RWH, and good agreement in reliability curves generated by SWMM and rational formula-based model is observed. (via Semantic Scholar)
