Uncertainty propagation in aeolian processes: from threshold shear velocity to sand transport rate

Abstract:

The accurate estimation of aeolian saltation events is a fundamental requirement in the modelling of wind erosion, dust emission, dune movement and aeolian hazard prediction. A large number of semi-empirical sand transport rate models exist, with many relying on a single value for a shear velocity threshold above which saltation is initiated. However, measuring and modelling the sand transport rate suffers from the effects of a number of epistemic and aleatory uncertainties which make the ide...
