Project Summary

Previous research efforts at UAF have established that dust palliative performance may be compared using a calculation called the mean particle residence time τ (MPRT) [Bar18]. This calculation currently uses an Excel spreadsheet and manual processing of raw data. This makes sharing dust palliative MPRT reports time consuming and prone to error. We propose developing a cloud-based calculator to automate this process to automatically generate the report and share with Alaska Department of Transportation personnel to support continued research with comparative dust palliative studies.
