    Estimates water retention, saturated and unsaturated hydraulic conductivity from basic soil data (requires 32-bit Windows).

    Wind Erosion Prediction System (WEPS)

      This site provides access to the WEPS software version used for official purposes by NRCS field offices and Technical Service providers. NRCS developed and maintains the components of the WEPS Databases and information 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 such as saltation-creep and suspension including PM-10.
