Embroidery artist Bonnie Peterson made a beautiful piece based on our Belmecheri et al. (2016) Sierra Nevada SWE reconstruction that is currently part of an exposition at Yosemite National Park Museum.
Qichao Yao published the first paper from his PhD in GRL. In this paper, Qichao presents the first tree-ring based fire history for northeast China that goes back to 1774 and uses it to investigate climatic influences on past wildfire regimes. A photo of a fire-scarred sample from Qichao's study was also selected as the cover of this GRL issue. Cool stuff!
