Update of Dust Storm Index (DSI) maps for 2005 to 2010
Re-analysis and mapping of DSI for 1992-2005, 1992-2008 and 1992-2010 for the Australian Collaborative Rangeland Information System (ACRIS)
About the report
Continental scale wind erosion in Australia is measured by the Dust Storm Index (DSI). The DSI was first used in the National Collaborative Project on Indicators for Sustainable Agriculture (NCPISA) (McTainsh, 1998) and has been used monitoring wind erosion in all National State of the Environment (SoE) Reports and Queensland SoE reports and for the Australian Rangeland Information System (ACRIS) since 2007.
