Fire season is upon us, and in the Southwest thousands of acres are burning. In honor of Independence Day, this month’s Science Picks are dedicated to fire — find out what happens after the smoke clears; learn about new techniques scientists are using to handle some hot topics; and discover what gives firecrackers the bang for your buck.

These story ideas can help you cover ongoing earth and natural science research and investigation at the USGS — photos and Web links are provided to enhance your story. If you are not receiving USGS monthly Science Picks and would like to, would like to change the recipient, or no longer want to receive them, please email dmakle@usgs.gov.
