MetadataShow full item record
Wind erosion, a major problem of the world's agricultural region, is the process of detachment, transportation, and deposition of soil by wind. Wind erosion is most damaging in arid and semi-arid areas of the world, but it is not geographically unique to these areas. The destructive effects of wind erosion are often very serious with the land not only being robbed of its richest soils but also crops are either blown away and left to die or covered by sediments. Wind-borne particles also contribute to particulate air pollution and may be deposited in humid regions. Most countries in the world are vulnerable to wind action.
