Accelerated Soil Erosion

HideShow resource information
Rainsplash Erosion
Falling raindrops disrupt particles on soil surface and compact the surface of the soil
1 of 5
Overland Flow
Thin sheet of water on top of soil, picks up small particles and moves them downstream
2 of 5
Rill Erosion
Water runs down temporary channels formed by moving of soil from one area. Detaches particles and moves them downstream
3 of 5
Gully Erosion
Running water through more permanent steep channels. Able to move large particles downstream
4 of 5
Wind Erosion
Moving Air causes the moves and transporting of small, light soil particles
