Description :
With reference to pipeline corridors in Colombia, South America and Georgia, southeast Europe, this paper presents a procedure for evaluating the risk of erosion during the period between reinstatement of the soil and vegetation establishment, and for comparing the effectiveness of different methods of erosion control. The methodology is based on a modification of the Universal Soil Loss Equation (USLE)
