Restoration of eroding areas vulnerable to erosion:installation of gully and sheet erosion
For example, a hot bum of stubble followed by long bare fallow maintained by multiple tillages will have a very high adverse impact on sheet erosion
; thus, these practices are restricted to land with the greatest capability for sheet erosion
Finally, it was found that the rate of Light erosion was great in upper stream and decrease toward the outlet, while the heavy erosion appear in downstream, suggesting presence of a clear correlation between the stream order and degree of water erosion, whereas the sheet erosion
correlated with Initial orders, while Rill and Gully erosion correlated with major orders.
Crusting, runoff and sheet erosion
on silty loamy soils at various scales and upscaling from m2 to small catchments.
During the past twenty years, many researchers paid attention to the process of rill and sheet erosion
while some researchers have showed that rill and sheet erosion
on the plot is not an ideal indicator of the total amount of soil erosion .
Soils are also subject to rill, gully and sheet erosion
of varying degrees.
It is necessary to evaluate the reliability of the DEM produced using a camera during the rainfall event to quantify the sheet erosion
at the laboratory scale before field scale application.
For example, in the Murder Creek study, watershed erosion inputs were estimated through the Universal Soil Loss Equation (USLE) and the WEPP model, which only account for sheet erosion
(Jackson et al.
Splash erosion, sheet erosion
, rill erosion, and gully erosion are all types of water erosion.
is considered to be a uniform removal of soil in thin layers from sloping land, resulting from sheet or overland flow.
Erosion protection concentrates on protecting the perimeter of a site from runoff, providing surface protection from sheet erosion
, and reducing channel problems from gully erosion.
is the removal of a thin layer of soil in a sheet.
