  • Cover crops and their erosion-reducing effects during concentrated flow erosion
  • Cover crops are a very effective erosion control and environmental conservation technique. When cover crops freeze at the beginning of the winter period, the above-ground biomass becomes less effective in protecting the soil from water erosion
  • , but roots can still play an important role in improving soil strength. Therefore, root density distribution with soil depth and the erosion-reducing effect of these cover crops during concentrated flow erosion were assessed by conducting root auger
  • measurements and controlled concentrated flow experiments with 0.1 m topsoil samples. The results indicate that fine-branched roots are most effective in preventing concentrated flow erosion. After frost, the erosion-reducing potential of some species decreased
  • Impact of plot length on the effectiveness of different soil-surface covers in reducing runoff and soil loss by water
  • The main aim of this review is to explore to what extent the impact of plot length on the effectiveness of different surface covers (rock fragments, organic mulch and vegetation) in reducing runoff and soil loss by water erosion emerges from
  • a worldwide data set. Furthermore, it is investigated whether there is a significant difference in runoff or erosion-reducing effectiveness between rock fragments, organic mulches and vegetation. Data from 65 experimental studies are collected and analysed
  • in this review. Finally, 2 equations are proposed describing the possible effect of plot length and cover by rock fragments, organic mulches and vegetation on relative runoff and soil loss by water erosion. These findings have important consequences
  • Effects of land use on annual runoff and soil loss in Europe and the Mediterranean : A meta-analysis of plot data
  • The largest currently compiled database of plot runoff and soil loss data in Europe and the Mediterranean was analysed to investigate effects of land use on annual soil loss (SL), annual runoff (R) and annual runoff coefficient (RC). Therefore
  • This study seeks to assess the effect of agricultural terraces, irrigation channels, trails, and land abandonment on the hydrological connectivity of a small catchment and its consequences on predicting rates of soil erosion under 4 different
  • ) where 83 soil samples were collected. The different maps of hydrological connectivity were used to create runoff and sediment trap effectiveness masks that were included in the assessment of the effective cumulative runoff. The results showed
  • In this study, the effectiveness of 3 biological geotextiles in reducing soil losses during concentrated flow is investigated. Runoff was simulated in a concentrated flow flume, filled with an erodible sandy loam on 3 slope gradients. Treatments
  • included 3 biological geotextiles (borassus, buriti and bamboo) and one bare soil surface. The highest resistance against soil detachment was observed for the borassus covered soil surfaces. Overall, biological geotextiles are less effective in controlling
  • This paper aims at contributing to a better prediction of the root effects on soil erosion rates in the EUROSEM model. The approach for incorporating the root effects into this model is based on a comparison of measured soil detachment rates
  • The measurements of stem and root properties of 25 Mediterreanean plant species were conducted in the Cárcavo catchment in southeast Spain, in order to make a selection and to compare the effectiveness of species growing in different habitats
  • at catchment scale in this volcanic landscape were a particular lithology (Old Andesites) and slope angle followed by the silt fraction of the top soil. The quantification of land use effects on dominant erosive processes such as river bank and river bed
