Dust and smoke issues in the Great Basin Unified Air Pollution Control District

Clear Fire’s smoke path

Posted by admin on August 7, 2012

Yesterday, primarily in  the afternoon, the Clear Fire burned another 500 acres or more to reach a total size of 1800 acres.

Below was the predicted travel path for smoke originating from the fire at 3PM and 4PM yesterday.  This appears to have been pretty accurate, as the smoke seemed to arrive overnight and looked fairly dense over southeastern Mono County this morning (as observed from Bishop).  The Bishop Paiute Tribe’s PM2.5 monitor recorded 23 ug/m3, about three times the annual average, but still below the 24-hour limit of 35.
