 Neil Baker

 
Neil  assists our soil scientis at the Wind Erosion Laboratory.  He sets up and runs the outdoor wind tunnel to conduct field research into conditions that are conducive to loose, flat residue being blown off fields.  The resulting data will be used to develop a "blowing residue" function that will be incorporated into the ARS Wind Erosion Prediction System (WEPS).
