This study represents part of a project by the Global Change and Terrestrial Ecosystem Soil Erosion Network to validate wind erosion models. Soil loss measurements from 46 storm events from eroding fields in six states were compared to predictions from the Wind Erosion Prediction System (WEPS) erosion submodel. The field data were collected from small (2.5(More)
The Wind Erosion Prediction System (WEPS) is a process-based model that simulates daily weather and field conditions along with hourly wind speeds and erosion. Its physical basis should allow model application to regions outside the US for which it was originally developed. The objective of this study was to compare results from measured wind erosion with(More)
Improving wind erosion prediction and control requires correct estimates of the suspended dust (ss) and saltation (sn) components from field erosion events. The objectives of this study were to (a) develop an improved methodology (HPS) to estimate the fractions of sn and ss in the sediment discharge, and (b) compare HPS predictions to those of LM (Leys and(More)
