Research Project: Simulating Wind Erosion Induced Particulate Emission and Transport

Location: Engineering and Wind Erosion Research Unit

2012 Annual Report


1a.Objectives (from AD-416):
Combine the Erosion submodel of the Wind Erosion Prediction System (WEPS) coupled with the Meteorology, Chemistry, and Climate Model (MCCM) to simulate emission and regional transport of fine dust from agricultural fields.


1b.Approach (from AD-416):
Research studies will be conducted at both locations on developing systems to predict the generation and dispersion of fine particulates from agricultural lands. Research will be facilitated by exchanges of methodology for analysis and expertise in predicting regional fate of particulates generated from agricultural lands.


3.Progress Report:

Please see the parent project report for research information.
