Wind Erosion Vulnerability and Rainfall Mapping in the Southwestern United States

Northern Arizona Slides


Surface materials in the middle of an unnamed wash. The materials contain 65% by weight particles of less than 500 microns diameter, which are vulnerable to wind erosion --- this is yellow in the satellite eolian image.

Surface materials located on dunes at the edge of the unnamed wash approximately 10 meters north of the photo above. The materials contain 84% by weight particles of less than 500 microns diameter -- this is yellow in the satellite eolian image.
