By Taylor Emerson |
Using anonymous mobile device data, USU Researcher Wayne Freimund hopes to determine the carbon footprint of tourism to Utah’s Arches National Park. Through this project, he’ll be able calculate average miles per trip to the park, and from that determine a carbon emissions estimate.
“We don’t have a number for a park like Arches yet,” Freimund said. “But I’m sure it’s going to be substantial, because this is a national destination.”
