Faculty Feature - McKenzie Skiles
Hail, wind and thunderclaps sent people scrambling for shelter at the U’s campus on Tuesday, April 18. The storm left sullied souvenirs in its wake, coating cars and clothes with muddy raindrop residue.
So, what happened? Dust, said McKenzie Skiles, assistant professor of geography who researches dust and its impacts on snowpack. Skiles spoke with @theU to explain how dust from Utah’s West Desert caused the dirty deluge.
