Abstract

Measuring wind erosion is difficult as it requires the coincidence of a rare wind event with soil conditions that allow erosion. There is not necessarily a distinct threshold velocity; the relative force of the wind and the fluffiness of the soil determine whether erosion will occur. The relative importance of stable/unstable surface elements may be determined by analysing the wind profile. Lastly, a model of suspension with saltation has evolved; it suggests that saltation is not distinctly different from suspension and that there is no distinct saltation layer
