- ... Physical degradation of the soil increases its susceptibility to erosion by water action. However, relatively few studies have evaluated the opposite, i.e., the impact of water erosion on soil erodibility. This study was conducted in a corn field in Ohio. Some sites within the field have experienced water-induced soil erosion following heavy rainstorms. Physical characteristics of the soil were co ...

- ... Soil loss models are useful tools for making land management decisions to prevent soil and water quality problems. Several soil loss models have been developed, including the process-based Water Erosion Prediction Project (WEPP) model and the empirical Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE). Although process-based models provide accurate soil loss estimates, they are infrequently used for co ...
