Erosion reduces soil productivity and causes negative downstream impacts. Erosion processes occur on areas with erodible soils and sloping terrain when high-intensity rainfall coincides with limited vegetation cover. Timing of erosion events has implications on the selection of satellite imagery, used to describe spatial patterns of protective vegetation(More)
Regional assessment of soil erosion is an important step in the conservation of natural resources. A general problem is the availability of accurate regional data, especially in tropical regions. SAR imagery can play a role through direct detection of erosion features and the assessment of factors controlling erosion. This study presents preliminary results(More)
