Abstract

This paper is concerned with the development of predictive relations for application to the natural or spontaneous vegetation cover of arid and semiarid lands. Wind-tunnel experiments using arrays of model roughness elements to simulate vegetation were conducted to determine the quantitative influence of vegetation structural attributes on saltation threshold. To this end, the influence on saltation threshold of lateral cover (also known as roughness density), element aspect ratio AR (= height/diameter), and element porosity were examined
