GSL Dust Study Pledge

Message from Department Chair Dr. Kevin Perry: 

To date, I have bicycled 749 miles and have completed sampling of 40% of the GSL lakebed. I have documented the surface crust characteristics at 1825 locations and have collected more than one ton of soil. If you are interested in following my progress on this project and learning more about the interesting things I have observed along the way you can follow me on Instagram at “GreatSaltLakeDust”.  I would also like to take this opportunity to kick off a fundraising activity to support undergraduate scholarships and air quality research projects. I am seeking donors willing to pledge a certain amount of money for each mile I ride as part of this project. I estimate that the total mileage will be 2250 miles. Thus, a pledge of 10 cents per mile would end up being about $225 at the conclusion of the project (summer 2018).  We will, of course, accept pledges no matter how large or small as all proceeds will be used for undergraduate scholarships and air quality research activities. To make a pledge please fill out the form below. The students and I thank you in advance for your support!
