Abstract. Typically soil erodibility is quantified using an excess shear stress equation, dependent on two major soil parameters: the critical shear stress (I„ c ) and the erodibility coefficient (k d ). A submerged jet test (JET, Jet Erosion Test) is one method that has been developed and methodology of use established in the literature for measuring these parameters. In this study, a new miniature version of the JET device (“mini” JET), with the advantage of being easier to use in the… Expand
