Archived NRCS Site
for the
Wind Erosion Prediction System (WEPS)

This site allows access to the WEPS version used for official purposes by NRCS field offices. NRCS developed and maintains the components of the WEPS Databases on this site. The USDA-Agricultural Research Service is the lead agency for developing the science in the WEPS model and the model interface.

WEPS predicts many forms of soil erosion by wind including PM-10. It replaces the Wind Erosion Equation in use prior to January, 2008.
