Robyn Heffernan, National Weather ServiceMixing Height is important for assessing smoke dispersion for prescribed fires and wildfires. This webinar will review and explain the strengths and weaknesses of several tested methods for determining mixing heights. The webinar will include discussion of the innovative Turbulent Kinetic Energy (TKE) method that may provide critical atmospheric information for predicting Dispersion. TKE represents the most robust method for determining Mixing Height while the Stull Method represents an alternative approach that may be more operationally feasible. The webinar will discuss both approaches for determining Mixing Height. In addition, National Weather Service programs for determining Mixing Height will also be described.
