Analysis of meteorological data is a critical component in calculating soil losses from a field during wind erosion events. Although wind direction, precipitation and temperature have an effect, the basic parameter used to calculate soil loss is wind speed. In the United States, wind speed data are generally available from US National Weather Service (NWS) stations located at regional airports. However, most agricultural lands do not lie in proximity to NWS stations and wind speed data must be… CONTINUE READING
