Research Project: Measurement and Modeling of Fugitive Dust from off-Road Dod Activities

Location: Engineering and Wind Erosion Research Unit

Project Number: 5430-11120-009-21
Project Type: General Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jul 15, 2011
End Date: Sep 30, 2014

Objective:
The goal of the project is to utilize a combination of soil science, meteorological and traditional air quality sampling methods to accurately measure soil and surface characteristics, identify those characteristics significant to fugitive PM emissions due to military vehicle trafficking and wind erosion susceptibility after military training activities on DoD installations.

Approach:
The objective will be achieved through a comprehensive set of tasks that are designed to obtain specific data required to adequately characterize changes in soil and surface conditions due to off-road military vehicle activities and determine the sites’ changes in susceptibility to wind erosion.
