An Overview of the Wind Erosion Prediction System Introduction Soil erosion by wind is a serious problem in the United States and the world. Wind erosion is a threat to agriculture and the earth’s natural resources. It renders soil less productive by removing the most fertile part of the soil, namely, the clays and organic matter. Soil erosion by wind or water is a selective process where the organic-rich topsoil is lost (Lowery et al., ). Soil erosion is likely the greatest degrader of soil quality by natural forces because when soil is lost by erosion it is generally not replaced by natural weathering processes within a .

The book deals with several aspects of soil erosion, focusing on its connection with the agricultural world. Chapters’ topics are various, ranging from irrigation practices to soil nutrient, land use changes or tillage methodologies. The book is subdivided into fourteen chapters, sorted in four sections, grouping different facets of the topic: introductive case studies, erosion Cited by: 9. Equally ruinous are the adverse effects of wind erosion. Although wind erosion is less than water erosion on a world scale, the problem is severe in many semiarid and arid regions. There is an urgent need for standardizing methodologies to increase the reliability and accuracy of data on soil by: Erosion is a threat to sustained agricultural production. Soil erosion is a process of moving soil by water or wind - when the soil particles are detached and transported to a different location. This is a natural process that has occurred for eons of time. Water, wind, ice, .

Soil erosion by wind in European agricultural soils: A GIS version of the Revised Wind Erosion Equation (RWEQ) was developed in JRC to model at large scale wind erosion. The model is designed to predict the daily soil loss potential by wind erosion at 1km spatial resolution. The soil that is most affected by erosion is the topsoil layer. Soil erosion is accelerated by a sloped landscape, the removal of vegetation to create land space, soil tillage for agriculture, and drought. Wind and water play a monumental role in soil erosion. On agricultural land, erosion causes loss of nutrient rich topsoil, which results in. Soil erosion is the displacement of the upper layer of soil, it is one form of soil natural process is caused by the dynamic activity of erosive agents, that is, water, ice (glaciers), snow, air (wind), plants, animals, and humans. Oct 16,  · Soil conservation includes all those measures which help in protecting the soil from erosion and exhaustion. Soil erosion has been continuing over, such .
