National Wind Erosion Network

The National Wind Erosion Research Network, a collaboration between the USDA LTAR network and the Bureau of Land Management, operates 15 sites across western North America (with more planned) that measure aeolian (wind) sediment transport rates in order to quantify wind erosion and inform public land management.


  • The Jornada Basin site has been in operation since 2015.
  • Data are available from the NWERN data portal.
