They examine how climate change causes the underlying conditions that combine with acute or unusual events to produce large fires. The new print magazine, which the pair co-edits, focuses on Earth science research and is a publication of the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences at Oregon State. Image from Strata, Oregon State University
