Short summary
In Hungary wind erosion causes serious problems in agricultural production as well as in soil and environmental quality. Our aim was to provide a nationwide spatially detailed assessment of the susceptibility of land in Hungary to wind erosion, integrating different databases. According to the resulting map of wind erosion susceptibility, about 10% of the total area of Hungary can be identified as susceptible to wind erosion.
