Description :
This paper investigates the hydrological and erosional consequences of logging using small hillslope plots from Sabah, Malaysia, subjected to simulated rainfall, and laboratory measurements of the effects of compaction on soil permeability. It also considers the effects of vegetation regeneration by investigating plots from areas logged in 1988-89 and in 1991, to help to evaluate the significance of spatial variability within catchments that have been logged at different times in the past. Sediment yields decline systematically with the length of the regeneration period.
