Smoke from western forest fires drifted eastward across the Great Lakes region, eastern Canada and northeastern US during July 25, 2014 and caused distinct increases in concentrations of fine particles measured at air quality monitoring stations during the afternoon. In this poster, the meteorological factors that caused smoke plumes aloft to get transported downward to the surface are examined.
