Runoff and sediment concentrations were measured under simulated rainfall for a range of plot lengths, tilled either across or up and down the slope, on two soils, both of 4% slope. Sediment was moved by either rain-flow transport (the combined action of drop impact and shallow overland flow), or rilling, in which overland flow alone was the main agent of detachment and transport. Rain-flow transport occurred on all plots, while rilling developed only at plot discharges greater than 0.3-0.7 L s… CONTINUE READING
