OUR TAKE: Unintended Consequences! Bushfire Smoke Prompts Plankton Bloom

Who in Australia would have guessed the 2019-20 bushfires would trigger a huge, continent-sized phytoplankton bloom in the Southern Ocean?  Deadly to animals, out of season, unprecedented in two decades of satellite records, this anachronistic event was tracked by biological oceanographers of the University of Tasmania, with results
