As a tectonic plate slides into the mantle, the heat releases fluids trapped in the plate. Seawater and carbon dioxide, rise into the upper plate and can partially melt the overlying crust, forming magma. And magma most likely means volcanoes are around.
When thinking of a desert, one would think of a large, dry, and sandy area like the Sahara Desert. The Great Basin Desert is different because it is a cold desert. A cold desert is completely different from the typical desert with average temperatures of 55-57 degrees Fahrenheit in summer, and in winter it averages around 4 degrees Fahrenheit. Cold deserts will normally have much more water. Water is the lifeline of The Great Basin Desert (Pellant), which is a good thing and a bad thing. The term “basin” is used with the meaning no water from the ocean ever reaches this region (National Park Service). Water rights to the Great Basin Desert have been a problem for a long time and with the risk of water loss and risk of losing groundwater.

In the summer of 2011, I was sent out advance party to Twenty-nine Palms to set up and coordinate initial ammunition supply point for Desert FireX.

Wildfire in California is a significant environmental problem that is increasing becoming more severe. Recent studies have shown that wildfire frequency, size, and area burned are all increasing in the western United States (Miller et al. 2008). The 2015 fire season set a record for the amount of acres burned in the United States with 68,151 wildfires burning 10,125,149 acres of land (Insurance Information Institute 2015). High severity wildfires have substantial environmental, economic, and human health impacts. Policy changes such as an adaptive management system of fuel reduction, as well as communication and education are essential tools in combating wildfire in California.

A wildfire is any instance of uncontrolled burning in grasslands, brush, or woodlands. Wildfires destroy property and valuable natural resources, and may threaten the lives of people and animals. Wildfires can occur at any time of the year, but usually occur during hot, dry weather. Wildfires are usually signaled by dense smoke which may fill the air for miles around. The National Weather Service, U.S. Forest Service, and State forestry agencies combine to give wildfire probability forecasts. Local radio and television stations broadcast information and warnings on local fire conditions. Wildfires pose an increasing threat to the residential United States. In 1987, 53,000 fires consumed more than two million acres. By October 1988, almost
