Soil erosion is becoming more and more serious worldwide in recent decades, and remains a major threat to terrestrial ecosystem and global sustainable development. The loss of topsoil through erosion results in a significant loss in productivity. The subsoil remains is likely to be incapable of supporting viable agricultural enterprises. Runoff from eroding landscapes contains sediment and any nutrients, fertilizers or pesticides that were present in the soil. Assessment on soil erosion hazard… CONTINUE READING
