THE WIND EROSION PREDICTION SYSTEM (WEPS) USER DOCUMENTATION, TUTORIALS, AND TRAINING MATERIALS

Wind Erosion

United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Research, Education & Economics Information System (REEIS)

Titre : THE WIND EROSION PREDICTION SYSTEM (WEPS) USER DOCUMENTATION, TUTORIALS, AND TRAINING MATERIALS

Identification : 5430-11120-008-01S

Pays : Etats Unis

Durée : Sep 29, 2004 à Sep 28, 2009

Domaine : Protect Soil from Harmful Effects of Natural Elements ;

Partenaire : KANSAS STATE UNIV MANHATTAN

Objectif  : Complete the WEPS 1.0 user documentation suite, which consists of ; (a) WEPS 1.0 user’s Guide ; (b) WEPS 1.0 tutorials ; (c) DVD training session on fundamental wind erosion processes ; (d) online, context-sensitive help ; and (e) presentation materials to assist in training WEPS 1.0 users.

Descriptif
Both parties are interested in developing documentation for WEPS 1.0 that will not only assist in training users to correctly apply the WEPS model, but also provide the WEPS user with basic information on the fundamental physical processes of wind erosion as well as the underlying principles and strategies for its control. This information will assist land managers, conservation partners, NRCS, and military personnel in controlling wind erosion on agricultural crop lands, disturbed lands and natural ecosystems. Both parties already have ongoing research efforts in wind erosion ; and, the cooperative work to be conducted under this SCA will be collaboratively planned and conducted.
