A new computer modeling study links unusual cooling due to the Australian wildfires in 2019 to our recent triple-dip La Nina, which ended this spring. The new modeling study, published today in Science Advances, show that the vast clouds of aerosols from the fires, which scorched large areas of Australia, may have blocked sunlight, causing the cooling that shifted the usual pattern of surface temperatures, shifting weather conditions world-wide.
