Today, the threats to the quality and productivity of our soils come not just from natural causes such as wind or stream erosion, but even more from encroachment by cities, roads, and extractive industries and, equally, by the demands for soils by the manufacturers of building materials such as bricks and concrete.
Stream erosion can lead to exposed pipelines, and managers are faced with relocating the pipe and performing localized streambank stabilization.
Next layer probably can consist of the rocks susceptible to erosion ([rho] < 40 [OMEGA]m) what may have confirmed a presence of stream erosion valley on 150-th m of the profile.
The goal of K-State's team is to reduce stream erosion, irrigation needs, soil erosion and increase student awareness of innovative green infrastructure.
For example, Adeniji [10] developed equations for stream front advance distance (m), stream erosion rate (m/s), and water runoff (l/s) for furrow irrigation:
But if processes like stream erosion or drifting sand dunes are filling them in, it's possible that the surface is much older that it appears.
which has also been using the Jet Test Apparatus in stream erosion and sedimentation studies, provided the device and training to help the Corps of Engineers with the initial testing of the levees.

Williams felt this was a long-term solution to protect the pipeline by mitigating any future stream erosion at this location.
Since the bones show little evidence of tumbling or stream erosion, it must be assumed that the stream excavated the bones only a short distance and transported them to the recovery site.
