Advantages

Particles hitting the microphone produce high frequency noise, which can be distinguished from other noises caused by wind and rain. Frequencies of about 8 KHz are amplified and used to determine saltation.

  • Ideal for erosion research & practical applications for example in sand dunes
  • Measures wind erosion using an acoustic measuring principle
  • The impact of sand grains can be measured, counted and saved.
  • Stainless steel housing
