The U.S. Dustbowl was a devastating event for much of the Great Plains, but its effects tapered off in Iowa. Deb Peters and her team wanted to know more about this spatial pattern, and their findings are presented in a new article in the ESA journal Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment (https://doi.org/10.1002/fee.2194). See the representative figure and citation info below.
