Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Flames and heat figure in these two distinctive, yet weirdly evocative ‘end of the world’ scenarios.

The other the literal preservation of our land that supports the life and livelihoods of people, as well as sustaining the lives of countless animals and trees.
