Research Project: Collaborative Research: a Potential New Dust Source in the Southern Hemisphere: Reactivation of the Kalahari Dunes

Location: Range Management Research

Project Number: 6235-11210-007-30
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Sep 01, 2013
End Date: May 31, 2015

Objective:
To provide support for an NSF-funded research project designed to determine whether reactivation of the Kalahari dunes of Botswana are likely to result in significantly increased dust emissions to the atmosphere.

The major component of the proposed research is three field campaigns to Botswana for the experiment outlined in the original proposal documents. A half-time technician will be supported for 2 years to provide assistance to a post-doctoral research associate under the direction of a USDA-ARS scientist.
