Outlet: Bloomberg

Bloomberg: Emily Fischer, an assistant professor of atmospheric science at Colorado State University, has been sampling what she calls “rivers of smoke” over Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, and Utah since late July. Nevada and Utah appear to be to be swimming in smoke, at least that is what it seemed like to Fischer during a particularly bumpy ride aboard a C-130 plane, as it navigated the smoke enveloping Utah.
