Relative field erodibility based on many previous wind tunnel and field measurements is merely an index of the quantity of soil loss that would occur under certain climatic conditions. This paper, based on additional measurements, shows the relationship between the relative field erodibility and the quantity of soil loss and presents a table for converting the relative field erodibility, as determined from seven major factors, to soil loss in tons per acre per annum as would occur under climatic conditions such as existed in the vicinity of Garden City, Kansas, during the years 1954 through 1956.
