Air Toxics: Agricultural and Residential Burning

Agricultural and residential burning can produce a large amount of smoke in a short amount of time, often releasing hazardous chemicals into the atmosphere. There are a number of regional projects to study the effects of outdoor burning in order to better assess the associated risks to human health and to the environment.
