  • Field measurements of interrill erosion under different slopes and plot sizes
  • The objectives of this study were to anlyse the effect of slope angle on interrill erosion for different plot sizes and to identify possible detachment and transport processes involved in the interactions between slope, rain characteristics and plot
  • size. Runoff rate, flow velocity and sediment delivery were measured in the field under different slopes and plot sizes for both natural and simulated rainfall. Rain-impacted flow conditions were also compared to flow conditions only.

  • Effects of agricultural land use on surface runoff and erosion were studied in a Mediterranean area with viticulture and fruit culture (Ouvèze river basin, France). Farming has to cope with erosion on fields, quick removal of rain for crops, erosion
  • along field boundaries and tractor roads, and overflowing of silted-up ditches. Aspects of agricultural land use examined are tillage and traffic operations, their interaction with intra-annual variations in plant cover and rainfall, and the role
  • of linear elements in the agricultural landscape (such as ditches, field boundaries, tractor roads, wheel tracks and furrows). - (AGD)

  • Historical constraints on slope movement age : a case study at Broadway, United Kingdom
  • This paper describes the use of the remains of ridge and furrow cultivation to date mass movements at Broadway, thereby, combining field survey with historical research in order to categorize landslide activity.

  • . The influence of slope gradient, plant species and plant parameters on the shape and height of microtopographic studies is also studied. Main processes were identified as affecting mound development in the studied field site : sedimentation, differential
  • In this study, the influence of 3 representative species of the Mediterranean matorral on slope microtopography is determined and the processes that take part in the development of microtopographic structures beneath the plant canopy are identified

  • Field survey and analysis of hillslopes on tower karst in Guilin, southern China
  • Two types of tower karst landform feature, fenglin or peak forest (isolated towers) and fengcong or peak cluster (linked-base towers), were identified in Guilin. Previous studies proposed two hypotheses regarding their origin and evolution

  • Investigation of relationships between measured field indicators and erosion processes on badland surfaces at Petrer, Spain
  • by vrious degrees of rill erosion or mass wasting. Indicators explaining this relationship are surface characteristics, runoff and infiltration characteristics and chemical and mineralogical soil properties. From the experimental study it was concluded

  • responses in the context of both land use impacts and the timing of large floods from approximately 1880 to 1995. Field studies were combined with hydrologic and sediment-load modeling to evaluate geomorphic responses in relation to stream position. Lastly
  • North Fish Creek, Wisconsin, served as a case study of the hydrogeomorphic responses of streams in the northern Great Lakes region to widespread clear-cut logging and deforestation following European settlement. This study also examined geomorphic

  • This research aimed to delineate the nation-building project in education and the response of the Russians and Russophone Ukrainians in post-Soviet Ukraine. The study deals with two central questions : (1) What kind of nation-building policies did
  • the national authorities introduce in the field of education in the post-Glasnost era and (2) How do the local Russians and Russophone Ukrainians react to the current nation-building policies in education (i.e. in terms of school choice, language use

  • Author studied the level of anthropogen accumulation between the Mecsek and Villány region, which is part of the southern Transdanubian Hills. This area is built up of Pannonian layers covered by thick loess deposits. Investigation was focused
  • on the accumulation near the road and valley junction working with geodesic levelling system. Results of the field survey show the differences between the natural and manmade valley floor levels. - (ZK)

  • In Mediterranean areas the dynamics of gully development act as an important indicator of desertification. However, little is known about the influence of climate and land-use changes, and almost no field data exist to assess the sensitivity
  • of a landscape to gully erosion. Two important components of gully erosion studies are the prediction of where gullies begin and where they end. To address some of these issues, topographical thresholds for gully initiation and sedimentation in 6 different
  • Mediterranean study areas were established. Discussion of the results.

  • The AA. employed rhyolite domes formed during the past million years in eastern California to study the evolution of boulder-dominated slopes. The slopes studied are steep and are made of coarse, boulder-sized blocks. These slopes include well
  • -varnished vertically-oriented colluvial deposits that appear similar to relict periglacial stone stripes. Basic field and isotopic dating methods are combined with 2 relatively new surface dating techniques, cosmogenic chlorine-36 and rock varnish

  • Based on the experiments of soil moisture conducted near the interface of alfafa/winter wheat stands from May to June in 1996, this study will focus on spatial variability of soil moisture near the interface on the small scale. The scale
  • of the interface, being 60 m, is especially chosen in order to make the results meaningful in agriculture and soil water resources management in China. As the size of the plots as such is typical in China to separate different cultivation fields as geographical
