Episode 8 - A World of Fires

At any given time, there is a fire burning somewhere on Earth. Join experts Thursday, September 12 at 3 p.m. EDT for a closer look at how fires are part of our changing planet. As the climate warms, it has directly affected the way fires occur, with longer fire seasons and more extreme fires that are harder to suppress. With a fleet of satellites orbiting Earth, NASA has a unique perspective to keep an eye on these fires, the impact they have on ecosystems, and how smoke degrades air quality for local communities and populations downwind from biomass burning.
