Wind erosion is much more severe in arid areas and during times of drought. For example, in the Great Plains, it is estimated that soil loss due to wind erosion can be as much as times greater in drought years than in wet years. Mass movement.

Int. Symp. Rainfed Agr. Semi-Arid Regions, Riverside: Univ. Cited by: 3. on the Great Plains W IND EROSION and dust storms have become serious problems to people living on the Great Plains. Each major drought of the last 60 years has brought widespread soil blowing.
Twice within the last 30 years parts of the Plains have been called a "dust bowl." The normally high winds and recurring droughts will always threaten this region. SOIL EROSION. Soil erosion is the Erosion and its control in the Great Plains region book of soil from a position on the landscape.
The two main agents of soil erosion are wind and water. The type of erosion that occurs is generally related to climate. Because the climate of the Great Plains is relatively dry, and strong winds are common, wind erosion is widespread throughout the region.
The Importance of Erosion Control Erosion Control Handbook for Local Roads 5 Effective erosion control requires an integrated approach, which considers government statutes and reg-ulations, a broad knowledge of temporary and permanent erosion control methods; design, construction, andFile Size: 2MB.
The Dust Bowl refers to a disaster focused in the Southern Great Plains of North America during the s, when the region experienced extreme wind erosion.
Dry farming techniques increased soil erodibility. Drought reduced both soil cohesion, making it more erodible, and land cover, leaving the soil less protected from wind by: Cracking Up: A Story About Erosion By Jacqui by Matthew Lilly.

The lessons detailed in these two books indicate that, absent an increased commitment to stewardship and sustainable practices, both at the pump and on the farm, the nation’s increased reliance on biofuels, particularly corn-based ethanol, may raise the specter of another “boom and bust” for Great Plains soil and water by: 1.

In the Great Plains Prevailing Wind Erosion Direction Erosion of agricultural lands by wind is a serious problem in the Great Plains. To reduce the hazard of soil movement by wind, wind barriers of various types and directional orienta- tion have been used.

Boom and Bust on the Great Plains: Déjà Vu All Over Again more sustainable farming practices to control soil erosion.
This evolution, and the events that fostered it, are described in Part I Author: Sandra Zellmer. The record in the Southern Great Plains for the first 75 percent of the Cenozoic, however, speaks only of erosion. Only the Raton Basin contains sedimentary rocks of early Cenozoic age. The enormous quantity of debris that was shed off the rising mountains was transported across the region into the Gulf of Mexico, forming major deltas along the.
Abstract. The Great Plains is one of the largest physiographic provinces in North America and an important agricultural region. Stretching from Texas to Montana, the US portion of the Great Plains contains a diversity of soils including Mollisols, Alfisols, Aridisols, Inceptisols, and Entisols that reflect the soil-forming factors dominant in the region—parent material, climate, and by: 1.Department of Agronomy MF Erosion Principles of Wind Erosion and its Control A collection of minerals, organic matter, nutrients, gases, and water, soil is responsible for the production of the majority of the world’s food supply.
Soil is a virtual necessity for .Drought caused by sparse rainfall, hot summers, and high winds predominantly led to the soil erosion in the Great Plains during the 's.
Human factors such as over farming, and complete uprooting of plants left nothing to ground the sandy soil.
