Shrinking Salt Flats?

Bonneville Speed Week organizers cancelled the event this year because of the poor condition of the famous salt flats, and racers are worried about the impact of continued potash mining.

Bowen is an associate professor of geology and geophysics and director of the Global Change and Sustainability Center at the U.
