Health Risk Data - Volatile Organic Compounds in Wildfire Smoke During the 2019 FIREX-AQ Campaign and Beyond
Volatile organic compound (VOC) ground measurements collected via sorbent tubes and analyzed via thermal desorption-gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (TD-GC-MS) in Washington and Idaho wildfire smoke, during NASA/NOAA FIREX-AQ campaign (2019) and following fire season (2020). US EPA health risk methods were used to quantify the health risk from four fires: Nethker (ID, 2019), Williams Flats (WA, 2019), Chief Timothy Fire (WA, 2020) and Whitetail Loop Fire (ID, 2020) for benzene (cancer/non-cancer) and toluene, ethylbenzene, xylenes, and hexane (non-cancer).
