Short summary
This study combines surface-level air quality measurements with satellite imagery and back-trajectory modeling to investigate the long-distance transport of these emissions to the New York City metropolitan area and the northeastern US. Two events in August 2018 were traced to biomass burning on the western coast of Canada and from the southeastern US, highlighting the importance of understanding long-distance transport of fire emissions in air quality planning.
