Abstract

Wind-driven rain can be described as raindrops falling through a wind field at an angle different from the vertical under the effects of both gravitational and drag forces. A study of wind-driven rain erosion is an attempt to investigate the combined effect of wind and rain on soil erosion processes in situations where wind and rain occur at the same time.
