Abstract : The United States (U.S.) Department of Defense (DoD) conducts military training and testing activities on approximately 12 million hectares of land. Training exercises in which wheeled and tracked vehicles are used can result in land conditions susceptible to wind erosion. Particulates from subsequent wind erosion events on previously trafficked landscape may drift across the installation boundary, impacting air quality downwind.
