WEPS - NRCS, TSP Configuration
WEPS NRCS 1.3.9 (2013-10-30)
This is the WEPS version required for official use by NRCS field offices. NRCS developed and maintains the components of the WEPS Databases. The USDA-Agricultural Research Service is the lead agency for developing the science in the WEPS model and the model interface.
WEPS – the Wind Erosion Prediction System, is a tool for predicting the effects of management (practices and cropping rotations) on the wind erosion potential for a selected field site. WEPS simulates daily wind erosion processes based on weather, management crop rotations and soil conditions. The NRCS configuration contains settings designed to support NRCS official programmatic use of WEPS. Any interim database updates are not included in this configuration (none at this time) and should be obtained from your NRCS contact: Joel Poore, Joel.Poore@ftw.usda.gov, Conservation Agronomist, Wind Erosion Specialist, with the Natural Resources Conservation Service, Fort Worth, TX; 817-509-3213.
