Summary:Increasing population exerts enormous pressure on the land and water resources. Rapid industrialisation and irrational harnessing of the land and water resources lead to ecological imbalance. This results in environmental pollution. Erosion of the soil both by water and wind is a consequence of ecological imbalance. Wind erosion, however smaller in magnitude causes air pollution, breaks the harmony of life of the people in the area and drives them away seeking employment. In South India wind erosion is serious around Bodinaikanur in Madurai District of Tamil Nadu. Coastal wind erosion of serious dimensions occur in Tirunelveli district along the eastern portion adjoining the Bay of Bengal. Wind erosion compared with soil erosion by water on a world scale exists in a lesser area, but this does not mean that wind erosion is less serious. There are areas where the wind erosion is just as calamitous as the worst soil erosion by water. This paper deals with various facets of the problems and its control.
