The 2019-20 Australian bushfire season saw unprecedented fire activity that burned more than 46 million acres and destroyed more than 9,000 buildings. The flames and the excessive smoke that they caused were responsible for hundreds of deaths and darkened much of the continent.

David Bowman, professor of pyrogeography and fire science at the University of Tasmania, will deliver a talk titled “Viewing the 2019-2020 Australian bushfire crisis through a pyrogeographic lens” at 4 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 4. The talk, which is free and open to the public, will take place via Zoom.
