This category is for sites concerned with the erosion of soils by wind and water.
The Demonstration Erosion Control (DEC) project investigates the effectiveness of reducing erosion, sedimentation, and flooding.
Information on this group based at Wageningen University which focuses on education and research into preventing, reducing or recovering losses of soil, water and plant nutrients.
Provides information on the processes and modelling of raindrop impact induced erosion and the modelling of erosion in catchments (watersheds)
Basic information about erosion patterns, causes, and solutions.
Provides details of over 250 types of plants that can be used for ground cover and to prevent erosion.
Provides education, resource information and business opportunities for professionals in the erosion and sediment control industry.
It emphasizes research dealing with soil erosion; transport and deposition of sediment; movement of chemicals on upland areas and in streams; the impact of agricultural practices, in-stream structures, and bank protection on these processes; water quality; and the ecological well-being of streams.
US Department of Agriculture research lab focusing on fundamental erosion process research, erosion control research and delivery of improved erosion prediction technology.
Chemical agricultural practices are contributing to global warming, climate change, weather pattern disruption, erosion, and starvation.
Non-regulatory organization that works to enhance and protect the Redwood and Cottonwood Rivers. Journals, technical information, news, events, images, and details of how to get involved.
Computer program that estimates rates of soil erosion caused by rainfall and associated overland flow. Free download available together with documentation and manuals.
A look at some of the serious erosion areas in the United States.
The Soil and Water Conservation Society is an international organization that fosters the science and the art of soil and water conservation to achieve sustained use of land resources.
Collection of information on soil erosion from a wide range of scientific disciplines.
Diversion terraces, grassed waterways, surface inlets, and hedgerows are the most common structures used for soil conservation.
Information regarding: Erosion process research, erosion control research, and delivery of improved erosion prediction technology.
The WEPP-model, developed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is a process-based, distributed model for soil erosion prediction. Model software and documentation can be obtained through this site.
