The research of Dr. John Lin and Dr. Logan Mitchell on CO2 emissions throughout the Salt Lake Valley was featured by UNews and published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) recently. Their research shows the effect of metropolitan growth on the changes of the CO2 emissions and possibly aids in finding the most effective ways of reducing emissions in a growing urban and suburban area.
