Wind Erosion Risk

Wind Erosion Risk This map displays the risk of soil degradation by wind in the agricultural region of Alberta. Wind erosion is a concern because it reduces soil quality by removing soil nutrients, smaller soil particles and organic matter. Wind erosion can reduce air quality during extreme erosion events and also reduce water quality if eroded particles drift into streams and lakes. The map uses five classes to describe the wind erosion risk on bare, unprotected mineral soil: negligible, low, moderate, high and severe. This resource was created using ArcGIS. It was originally published as a print map in 1989. 2022-09-27 Government of Alberta duke@gov.ab.ca Economics and IndustryInformation and CommunicationsNature and EnvironmentALBERTACLIMATOLOGYMETEOROLOGYATMOSPHEREDESERTIFICATIONDOWNLOADABLE-DATAGEOSCIENTIFICINFORMATIONSOIL-FERTILITYSOIL-MOVEMENTGovernment information Wind Erosion RiskESRI REST https://geospatial.alberta.ca/titan/rest/services/agriculture/Agricultural_Land_Resource_Atlas/MapServer/22 Wind Erosion RiskESRI REST https://geospatial.alberta.ca/titan/rest/services/agriculture/Agricultural_Land_Resource_Atlas/MapServer/22 Wind Erosion Risk - (HTML)HTML https://geodiscover.alberta.ca/geoportal/rest/metadata/item/f2d9b01ec9c443c69285dc5b9bfeb5e8/html Wind Erosion RiskWMS https://geospatial.alberta.ca/titan/services/agriculture/agricultural_land_resource_atlas/MapServer/WMSServer?service=WMS&request=GetCapabilities&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/plain&layers=Wind Erosion Risk Wind Erosion RiskWMS https://geospatial.alberta.ca/titan/services/agriculture/agricultural_land_resource_atlas/MapServer/WMSServer?service=WMS&request=GetCapabilities&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/plain&layers=Wind Erosion Risk Wind Erosion Risk - (XML)XML https://geodiscover.alberta.ca/geoportal/rest/metadata/item/f2d9b01ec9c443c69285dc5b9bfeb5e8/xml Contains SHP and KMZ for Wind Erosion Risk dataset (From Alberta Geodiscorver Portal metadata)other https://extranet.gov.ab.ca/srd/geodiscover/srd_pub/AG_FOR/LandResourceAtlas/Wind_Erosion_Risk.zip Dataset (From Alberta Geodiscorver Portal metadata)other https://www1.agric.gov.ab.ca/$department/deptdocs.nsf/all/agdex10315 Alberta GeoportalHTML https://open.alberta.ca/opendata/8d6ff780-11e0-4f8a-96aa-d04eeebae458
