This page shows details on the project. The primary projects are displayed together with a list of sub-projects.

Project description:The project is designed to increase the current knowledge about the extent and severity of wind erosion and the current situation of wind erosion control measures (shelterbelts) in eastern Austria. Future developments of wind erosion risk and the potential need to adapt wind erosion control due to climate change will also be addressed. A combination of (1) field investigations (e.g. transect measurements), (2) wind tunnel experiments, (3) modelling, and (4) practical implementation (planting of a prototype shelterbelt) will be used.
