DUNE SAND STABILIZATION WITH SYNTHETIC SOIL CONDITIONERS: A LABORATORY EXPERIMENT

Dune sand was subjected to a range of rainfall intensities the application of chemicals used to stabilize the sand against the raindrop impact. The chemicals had been sprayed on the surface or incorporated with the sand. The following two results were observed: (1) a linear relationship was found between the side splash erosion and the kinetic energy of the rainfall, and (2) polyvinyl acetate, polyacryl amide (with cross-linker), and an asphalt emulsion, applied at optimal rates, diminished appreciably the side splash erosion for dune sand.
