Map 4.3: Wind erodibility of soils


Map 4.3

 

 

Used in Land chapter Section 4.2

Source: DLWC data, as at 2002

Notes: Wind erodibility, as calculated here, is independent of site conditions such as climate, vegetative cover or surface roughness. There is no data for approximately 14% of NSW and much of this area is in western parts of the State. Additionally, many catchments, especially those in western NSW, had inadequate data on land characterisation.
