How Australian Wildfire Emissions May Impact Global Climate

ACOM scientist Rebecca Buchholz contributed to an audio story about the Australian bush fires, aired January 10, 2020 on National Public Radio. Wildfires release a lot of carbon when they burn vegetation, and that massive carbon release can potentially affect the climate. Rebecca recently visited family in Australia on a smoke-filled and subdued holiday.
