An empirical investigation of gully widening rates in upland concentrated flows
Abstract Soil erosion, in its myriad forms, devastates arable land and infrastructure. As an integral landscape feature, gully erosion is a complex system as its evolution is controlled by upstream
AGNPS GIS-Based Tool for Watershed-Scale Identification and Mapping of Cropland Potential Ephemeral Gullies
The formation of ephemeral gullies in agricultural fields has been recognized as an important source of sediment contributing to environmental degradation and compromising crop productivity.
Modeling pre-and post-dam removal sediment dynamics : The kalamazoo river, michigan
The state of Michigan is interested in removing two low-head dams in an 8.8 km reach of the Kalamazoo River between Plainwell and Otsego, Michigan, while minimizing impacts locally and to downstream
A laboratory study of channel sidewall expansion in upland concentrated flows
Abstract Gully erosion contributes large amounts of sediment within watersheds around the world. Gully widening constitutes about 80% of total soil loss, especially in the presence of a plow pan
Ephemeral gully channel width and erosion simulation technology
Concentrated surface runoff, such as associated with ephemeral gully channels, increases erosion and transfers fine sediment and associated agrichemicals from upland areas to stream channels.
Morphodynamics of headcut development and soil erosion in upland concentrated flows.
In agricultural regions, gully erosion is now recognized as a dominant source of soil loss, and the development and upstream migration of headcuts is critical to the initiation, incision, and
Coupled effects of solution chemistry and hydrodynamics on the mobility and transport of quantum dot nanomaterials in the vadose zone.
GWI were found to be the dominant mechanism and site for QD removal compared with solid-water interfaces (SWI) and pore straining and to be attenuated by the presence of surfactant.
Spatial characterization of riparian buffer effects on sediment loads from watershed systems.
The AnnAGNPS riparian buffer component represents an important step in understanding and accounting for the effect of riparian vegetation, existing and/or managed, in reducing sediment loads at the watershed scale.
Infiltration and Surface Geometry Features of a Swelling Soil following Successive Simulated Rainstorms
The theory of water movement in high shrink/swell soils has experienced consistent revision since Haines first presented the topic in 1923. Several aspects of the infiltration process in cracking
