SOIL EROSION AND DUST CONTROL ON ARIZONA HIGHWAYS: PART I. STATE OF THE ART REVIEW

This report represents a comprehensive literature survey illustrating the state-of-the art regarding soil erosion due to wind, rain, and traffic forces. The report treats each of these factors individually. Each section starts by an understanding of the mechanics of erosion, then proceeds with methods used to control erosion with emphasis on chemical stabilization with a detailed review of the available chemical agents and their effectiveness in erosion control. At the conclusion of each section is a summary listing of all the chemical stabilizers that have been reportedly used along with performance rating given these chemicals in the reviewed references. These ratings were based on observations in both laboratory and field studies. Each section contains a listing of major references consulted.
