Best layer to visualize smoke?
What is the best layer to visualize and forecast wildfire smoke?
In meteoblue I find PM10 to be a fairly good indication of what to expect. CAQI is another good indicator. Windy has "Aerosol", how does it compare to mblue PM10?
In Windy there are 4 layers which are useful for fire / smoke detection and forecast:
- Fire intensity
- CO concentration
Here are examples with the current large wildfires in west of USA.
