A Deep Dive into Dust with Dr. Stephanie Arcusa
May 24, 2021 at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFREE
May 24th from 7pm-8pm
The Southwest United States is naturally dusty. When dust is blown from the deserts to the mountains, it can settle on snow. Dusty snow will melt up to three weeks earlier than clean snow creating challenges for water management downstream. As dust is interconnected with drought by vegetation, will increasing and prolonging drought due to climate change cause more dust? Join Dr. Stephanie Arcusa for this free zoom program to learn more about a complex relationship between the land, climate, and humans that speaks of a need for careful management of the land to protect our water supply.
