An attempt of wind erosion intensity calculations for substantiation of erosion control measures at arable lands of Northern Caucasus and Lower Don. An empirical model of wind erosion is proposed. It is based on the revised relationship between the wind velocity and the rate of sand transportation by wind. The erodibility of silt and clay soils was calculated from soil loss data for 30-35 years. The methods of determination of all other factors which are included in the model are described. A new formulae for estimation of distance between shelter-belts is suggested.
