Description :
This paper investigates the effects of rock fragment properties on interrill soil surface roughness. Therefore, the surface roughness evolution of 13 simulated plough layers with different rock fragment content, rock fragment size and initial moisture content was studied during rainfall in the laboratory. In order to evaluate the long-term effects of rainfall and sheet erosion on surface roughness of stony interrills, two abandoned hillslopes in southeastern Spain were investigated. Relations obtained can be used to improve erosion models on stony hillslopes.
