Novedades: Soil Erosion and Sediment Production on Watershed Landscapes: Processes and Control

Losses of the soil resources from otherwise productive and well functioning watersheds is often a recurring problem confronting hydrologists and watershed managers. The purpose of this publication is to: To describe the processes that lead to losses of soil resources through erosion; effective methods of preventing unacceptable soil losses on watersheds; and methods of controlling the losses of soil resources when these losses become excessive; To describe the sedimentation that is likely occur with the losses of soil resources on a watershed; the methods of reducing the accumulations of sediment in stream channels; and measures of the sediment outflows from a watershed; To discuss the economics of selecting economically feasible watershed management practices to prevent or control excessive increases in the loss of soil resources on watershed landscapes.
