About this book

Discusses the latest information regarding the processes and mechanisms responsible for runoff and erosion by water in arable lands - detailing state-of-the-art water and soil conservation methods.

." . .Each chapter is amply illustrated with data tables, graphic presentations, mathematical equations, and cited references. . . . . .a useful reference. . .and highly recommended for researchers and extension workers in soil science, agriculture engineering, climatology, and agronomy." ---Soil Science


Part 1 Soil erosion by water: basic factors and processes in soil erosion - infiltration and seal formation processes, rainfall analysis, soil characteristics and aggregate stability, splash and detachment by waterdrops, slope, aspect and surfacestorage, the effect of surface cover on infiltration and soil erosion; forms of erosion - interill erosion, rill and gullies erosion; soil loss and runoff estimation - soil loss estimation, runoff estimation in agricultural fields. Part 2 Soilconservation: common soil and water conservation practices; soil stabilizers. Part 3 Soil rehabilitation: reclamation of gullies and channel erosion; reclamation of salt affected soil; reclamation of sodic affected soils; impact of crop rotation and landmanagement on soil erosion and rehabilitation.
