【Abstract】

<正>Introduction Wind erosion is a critical issue on lands disturbed by off road vehicle us in the Delta Junction area,Alaska and in the saddle between Mauna Loa and Mauna Koa,Hawaii.Low visibility for off road vehicles,impacts on restoration potential, public transportation and quality of life for area neighbors are concerns.In Alaska,cold temperatures slow plant growth and soil genesis;thus erosion losses have long-term(100+ years) effects(Grantham et al.2001).Reduction of accelerated wind erosion is a significant first step to insuring ecological integrity,and minimizing safety and quality of life concerns.
