Sediment yield as a desertification risk indicator

Soil erosion is often regarded as one of the main processes of desertification. This has led to the use of various desertification indicators that are related to soil erosion. Most of these indicators focus, however, on small spatial units, while little attention has been given to the amount of sediment exported at the catchment scale.

Fact sheet 2: Indicators of erosion

obvious indicators of erosion that if acted on quickly can prevent further erosion. It is far easier to fix small problems than repair gullies and landslips. This leaflet outlines some of these early indicators of erosion and what they mean. Bare soil If you have bare soil you will inevitably have erosion because soil particles are easily carried

Ecological and economic indicators for measuring erosion ...

Dec 01, 2018  Erosion and sedimentation are inter-related physical processes that lead to different onsite and offsite (dis)services as discussed in the beginning of the paper. This article focuses on the most important indicators needed to measure soil erosion and sedimentation services from biophysical, economic and societal perspectives.

Sep 01, 2006  Soils exhibiting splash pedestals, sheetwash, rills, sedimentation, red colour and stoniness were the erosion indicators selected for quantification. Three soil types and three slope gradients were identified and on each runoff plots were installed to relate the sheet-rill erosion developments to actual soil loss.

Sediment Concentration in Melt Waters as an Indicator of ...

Since it is unlikely that the rate of sediment production by erosion equals the rate of sediment transport by melt waters, expressed per unit area of glacier bed, accurate estimation of the rate of glacial erosion requires detailed close-interval samples of sediment concentration in melt waters over many annual cycles of discharge.

Check dam sediments: an important indicator of the effects ...

Mar 13, 2014  Variability of sediment particle size and 137 Cs in sediments increases with the direction of runoff and the depth of deposition. In the profile of the check dam we studied, the 137 Cs distribution was a strong indicator of rainfall erosion, events especially in 1963. Check dams were widely constructed in the Loess Plateau in the 1960s.

Erosion and sedimentation - Department of Water

Nov 13, 2018  Erosion is the transport by wind, water and ice of soil, sediment and rock fragments produced by the weathering of geological features. Sedimentation occurs when eroded material that is being transported by water, settles out of the water column onto the surface, as the water flow slows.

Whereas typical cross-beds dip in the direction of current flow, those formed by antidunes dip upstream. Antidunes can positively be identified when other current direction indicators are present.

erosion National Geographic Society

Most erosion is performed by liquid water, wind, or ice (usually in the form of a glacier).If the wind is dusty, or water or glacial ice is muddy, erosion is taking place. The brown color indicates that bits of rock and soil are suspended in the fluid (air or water) and being transported from one place to another. This transported material is called sediment.

Jul 02, 2016  Sedimentation is an important parameter to assess the life of a reservoir. Seventy-eight years ago, Cook was the first to identify mathematically, the three major factors affecting soil erosion in the catchment of a reservoir. As sedimentation is dependent on sediment yield and sediment yield depends on soil erosion, it is required to predict all three parameters to estimate the life of a ...

Estimated long-term soil erosion Stats NZ

Erosion leads to a loss of valuable top soil for productive purposes and impacts on soil ecosystem health. Erosion also leads to fine sediment in rivers, streams, lakes, and the coastal environment, causing problems for water and coastal ecosystems (such as the seagrass meadows that provide nurseries for our snapper and other fin fisheries).
