PLANTING VEGETATION IN DUNES BY MEANS OF A BITUMINOUS BINDER

PRADERIZACION DE MEDANOS MEDIANTE EL EMPLEO DE AGLUTINANTE ASFALTICO

In Argentina, extensive areas are affected by wind erosion. Various methods have been used to control dunes, but those methods are slow and require a large labouring force. Very recently, bituminous surface dressings have been used successfully for that purpose. The author describes the method utilized and its different stages: observation and enclosing of the dune, surface preparation, seeding, and application of a bituminous binder. The number of the covering abstract of the annual meeting is 100980. /TRRL/
