Changes in soil organic carbon induced by tillage and water erosion on a steep cultivated hillslope in the Chinese Loess Plateau from 1898–1954 and 1954–1998


[1] The fate of soil organic carbon (SOC) transported and redistributed by erosion over steep agricultural landscapes is uncertain. The effect of topography, slope, and slope position on SOC redistribution must be considered. Our objectives were to (1) determine the spatial patterns of both tillage and water erosion-induced SOC redistribution, (2) evaluate… (More)
