Soil Erosion in Iowa

Many Iowans might be interested in this interactive Iowa Daily Erosion map.  As part of the Iowa Daily Erosion Project at Iowa State University these interactive maps show daily estimates for soil erosion, rainfall, and soil moisture across the state. 

These daily estimates take rainfall, climate, land characteristics, and land management practices into consideration to generate estimates on what is happening in Iowa. 

You can look back to historical estimates for just yesterday or for entire years.  Check it out, it is pretty interesting.
