Accompanying Exercise: (For students to print off, complete, and turn in for a grade)
Factors Contributing to Water and Wind Erosion of Soil- Exercise (pdf)

Climate, soil properties, vegetation, soil cover, and land management practices are factors that influence both water and wind erosion. Soil surface roughness, unsheltered distance, and wind velocity and turbulence are additional factors influencing wind erosion, and topography is an additional factor influencing water erosion.
