Abstract The assessment of gully erosion poses a great challenge because of the complexity and connectivity of the geomorphic processes involved. This study focuses on the quantification of sheet erosion rates in a set of slope gullies located on the northern piedmont of the Guadarrama Mountains (Spanish Central System). In order to delineate accurately the gully areas in which sheet erosion was predominant, the Hydrologic/Erosion Response Unit (HRU/ERU) approach was used and a… CONTINUE READING
