This journal article was the result of my Master's thesis work which included the formulation of empirical mathematical equations that would predict the volume of sand that would be blown from a beach surface for a particular wind speed. The research discovered the importance of beach length - fetch - in determine the volume of sand blown off a beach surface. This research contradicted the long believed formula produced by Bagnold, 1941 used for determining soil erosion. The findings presented in this journal article have significant application in coastal zone hazard management.
