Station ID: RP-PSW-067

Description: Smoke from slash burns in the Cascade Mountains during a 3-day period of stable air conditions at lower elevations in October 1969 added little to existing air pollution in the Willamette Valley, in western Oregon. Aerial observations and weather data analysis determined that slash smoke dispersed eastward—away from the Valley. Studies of this type can help improve slash smoke management and suggest the need for further research.

Key Words: slash disposal, air pollution, Oregon
