Speaking at the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics’ (IUGG’s) Earth on the Edge: Science for a Sustainable Planet conference in Melbourne, Australia, CSIRO’s Dr Melita Keywood has said that closer scientific study is needed to determine just how the frequency and intensity of wildfires and intentional biomass burning will change in a future climate.

Are any SkS authors attending the IUGG's conference?

PS -- Hill's article would make an excellent cross-post on SkS.

ScienceDaily also covered this story, "Fire to Become Increasingly Important Driver of Atmospheric Change in Warming World."

Kirkwood's presentation was based on the paper, "Fire in the Air -- Biomass burning impacts in a changing climate," just published in the journal Critical Reviews in Environmental Science and Technology, co-authored by scientists from senior international atmospheric research agencies in the Australia, the US, Norway, Greece, Italy, Switzerland and Germany.
