About this book

This review of erosion research includes a series of papers that cover management, policy and economic issues as well as the physical processes of erosion. The articles reflect current debates such as enforcement of conservation, modelling problems, on-farm versus off-farm costs, and problems associated with erosion such as chemical pollution of lakes and damage to property by runoff.


Part 1 Erosion processes past and present: experimental plot and laboratory studies; soil redistribution; slope-stream linkages; historical surveys. Part 2 Assessment and prediction: soil deterioration; risks and costs; modelling. Part 3 Conservation and policy: conservation practices; politics and policy.
