This paper presents data obtained during wind-tunnel experiments examining the Raindrop Detachment and Wind-driven Transport (RD-WDT) process to investigate average sand particle trajectory and the spatial extent at which the process operates. The aspect and slope of the sand bed was varied to reproduce both windward (Ww) and leeward (Lw) slopes of 4° and 9° with respect to the prevailing wind direction. Results and discussion about the differences of the RD-WDT process from the Raindrop Detachment and Splash-driven Transport (RD-ST) and the Wind Erosion Saltation Transport (WE-ST)
