Abstract:
It is of the utmost importance that remedial measures be taken without delay in order to avoid further damage and prevent an already serious soil condition from becoming even more difficult to control. There are no extensive detailed data showing the extent of the scourge of soil erosion in New Jersey, but the preliminary surveys upon which this paper is based have conclusively brought to light that the damage is widespread and of the utmost seriousness. This condition must be met by an educational and research program, having as an aim the working out of efficient and economical control methods best fitted to local topographic, cultural and soil conditions.
