Rating: 2, High!

The "dust bowl" effect was caused by sustained drought conditions compounded by years of land management practices that left topsoil susceptible to the forces of the wind.This site is dedicated to the long term study of drought, its impact on history and the predicted consequences and policy options related to global warming.
