Short summary
This paper presents the first regional summertime smoke transport climatology for North America using observed smoke plume and fire location data. We show that these data are well correlated with existing biomass burning emission inventories. We present the abundance of smoke over different regions of North America and estimate where the smoke comes from, the age of smoke, and how often the smoke influences ground-level air quality.
