In the Kimberley, studying bushfires

While helping ignite a “hot fire” to support research on savanna burning in Western Australia and the Northern Territory. The question: if more fires are burnt in the cool season (cool fires) instead of when they typically burn (in the late season when it’s drier and hotter), how might reduce the overall carbon impact that would otherwise be burnt off and sent into the atmosphere. Since cooler fires consume less fuel and release less CO2 and other greenhouse gases.
