The aim of this paper is to determine the influence of soil moisture on the particulate matter (PM) emission of soils subjected to mechanical disturbance, particularly tillage. Measurements in Europe indicate that emission of dust by tillage operations is many times higher than by natural wind erosion. The AA. used a wind tunnel as a cross-flow gravitational separator to investigate the relation between soil type, soil moisture and fine dust emission. Twelve soils of different texture were investigated with regard to their water content. The results show the importance of the vertical soil moisture profile on the PM emission of soils
