Towards evaluating gully erosion volume and erosion rates in the Chambal badlands, Central India
High‐resolution multi‐temporal digital elevation model (DEM) are key to accurate mapping of gully erosion volume change studies. Owing to the lack of multi‐temporal DEM at a high spatial resolution,
Evaluation of Gully Erosion Susceptibility Using a Maximum Entropy Model in the Upper Mkhomazi River Basin in South Africa
The aim of this study was to identify and assess the triggering factors of gully erosion in the upper Mkhomazi River basin in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, and compiled a gully inventory map and applied remote sensing techniques as well as field surveys to validate the gully Inventory.
Long-Term Gully Erosion and Its Response to Human Intervention in the Tableland Region of the Chinese Loess Plateau
Assessment of gully erosion on the Chinese Loess Plateau from 1969 to 2019 found that all growing gullies still have the potential to keep growing, but soil and water conservation measures, including terraces, could change the threshold condition by reducing the effective drainage area.
Gully erosion on alluvial fans can be mitigated by altering the hydrological connectivity between an alluvial fan and the contributing catchment: a study in the Lhasa River basin
In the Lower Lhasa River basin of the Tibetan Plateau, gully erosion poses a threat to alluvial fans (AF), which are the main available land resource for agriculture. Runoff from the whole
Reconstruction of gully erosion based on exposed tree roots in a recent landform of Paricutin Volcano, Mexico
Gullies in volcanic deposits are among the first signs of erosion that can be observed during or immediately after the volcanic activity and reflective of unstable conditions of newly formed
Acceleration of Soil Erosion by Different Land Uses in Arid Lands above 10Be Natural Background Rates: Case Study in the Sonoran Desert, USA
Land use changes often lead to soil erosion, land degradation, and environmental deterioration. However, little is known about just how much humans accelerate erosion compared to natural background
Under pressure: Rapid lavaka erosion and floodplain sedimentation in central Madagascar.
Rapid assessment of abrupt urban mega-gully and landslide events with structure-from-motion photogrammetric techniques validates link to water resources infrastructure failures in an urban periphery
Abstract. Mass movement hazards in the form of mega-gullies and landslides pose significant risks in urbanizing areas, yet they are poorly documented. To obtain primary data on the size, frequency,


Incorporating uncertainty in gully erosion calculations using the random forests modelling approach.
Gully erosion represents one of the greatest threats to agricultural watersheds around the world and this is exacerbated with continual changes to land practices and changing climatic condition at a
Gully erosion in Europe
Soil erosion by water has received and still receives a lot of attention from scientists, soil conservationists and policymakers in Europe. However, when dealing with this soil degradation process,
Gully erosion as a natural and human-induced hazard
The Author(s) 2015. This article is published with open access at Gully erosion is an important environmental threat throughout the world and affects multiple soil and land
Gully erosion prediction across a large region: Murray–Darling Basin, Australia
Gully erosion is a significant process for delivering sediment to streams, and can be the dominant erosion process in some regions. As with other forms of erosion, we need methods to predict the
Hydrogeomorphic processes affecting dryland gully erosion: Implications for modelling
Gullies contribute high sediment loads to receiving waters and significantly degrade landscapes. In drylands, low annual rainfall and resultant poor ground cover, coupled with high-intensity storms
