Prescribed Burning & Fuels Reduction/Mitigation with the ACOEM ES-808 SCAMP Instrument

Prescribed burning and fuels reduction/mitigation

Partnering with experts in the wildland firefighting community, Acoem Met One has developed a revolutionary new tool to support prescribed burning and fuels reduction/mitigation.

The Met One System Contamination and Meteorological Platform (SCAMP) is a game-changer in environmental air quality monitoring. It provides crucial particulate data points for PM10 and PM2.5 levels, as well as meteorological and personnel safety measurements for wind speed and direction; ambient temperature; relative humidity; barometric pressure and carbon monoxide – critical for the safety of your personnel.


Join Acoem Met One’s Bill Bars and Sean Hendrix from Grayback Forestry in this online webinar to discover how Met One Instruments is working with the firefighting community (Wildfire and Structural), local, state, and federal agencies, and universities supporting fire ecology programs in an effort to assist these critical groups to preserve and manage the natural environment, and reduce smoke impact to local communities affected by wildfires.

Date: Thursday, June 29th 2023 

Time: 10:00 – 10:30 (PDT) GMT -7 /  7:00 – 7:30 AM (CEST) GMT +2  /  3:00 – 3:30 AM (AEST) GMT +10
