  • Ensure you have permission to use any graphics you include and credit the artist/photographer if necessary.

  • Please ensure acronyms and potentially obscure references are adequately explained on first use.

  • The target audience is composed of professionals in government, industry and academia, all of whom are involved with wildfire and smoke issues. Both descriptive and technical articles are welcome.
