An investigation of the wind erosion problem at Jerramungup was conducted by on-farm survey and Landsat interpretation from September to November 1981. Sandblasting and wind erosion were estimated to have seriousloy affected some 44,000 ha in 1980 and over 64,000 ha in 1981. The 1981 damage estimate is conservative, because a much greater area of pasture land was affected by erosion in May-July but achieved vegetative cover by later winter.
