10–15 January 2021, Punta Borinquén Resort, Aguadilla, Puerto Rico, USA
2021 Soil Erosion Research under a Changing Climate—A decadal ASABE Soil Erosion Research Symposium

Soil erosion caused by wind and/or water is a continuing problem throughout the world that threatens the capacity of the Earth to produce food, fiber, and renewable sources of energy for an ever-increasing population. Additionally, eroded sediment and agricultural chemicals are major water and air pollutants, causing many detrimental off-site impacts. Compounding the erosion problems are the effects of climate change, driven by increases in global atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations. Warmer air temperatures also increase ocean water temperatures, that can result in larger and more severe storms and hurricanes. For example, Puerto Rico was devastated by Hurricane Maria in September 2017, with 2975 fatalities, as well as infrastructure and erosion damages across the island. This symposium provides a forum for international participants to discuss the status and future of soil erosion research.
