Predicting Wind Erodibility of Locssial Soils in the Pacific Northwest by Particle Sizing

  title={Predicting Wind Erodibility of Locssial Soils in the Pacific Northwest by Particle Sizing},
  author={David G. Chandler},
IVind ttiimel tests on silty textured loessial soils throtigbout the Cohimhia Plateau of eastern Wa.shiitg{on slate and northern central Oregon were used ro define soil erndibiltiy for wind erosion predictions. Aggregate and primary particle size distributions were determined hy common techniques and correlated wiih the wind tunnel erosion values. Dry aerodynamic particle sizing by a laser method was not useful due to disaggregation caused by the method, although it verified the upper size of… CONTINUE READING
