Rainfall or excess irrigation causes runoff from our lawns, roads, parking lots and farm fields. Topsoil — with its organic matter, beneficial microorganisms and nutrients — washes away. In many cases, erosion can be dangerous. Also washing away are contaminants such as fertilizer, pesticides and petroleum.

      forests and trees provide some coastal protection and that the clearing of coastal forests and trees has increased the vulnerability of coasts to erosion (Figure ) — such as in Viet Nam (Mazda et al., ; Cat et al., ), Malaysia (Othman, ), Indonesia (Bird and Ongkosongo, ; Nurkin, ; Tjardana, ), Sri Lanka (Samarayanke, ), India . coastal land loss (Fig. 1) are erosion, inadequate sediment supply to beaches and wetlands, and coastal submergence (relative rise in sea level). Any one of these causes may be responsible for most of the land loss at a particular site, or the land loss may be the result of several factors acting in concert (Fig. 2).

Get this from a library. Erosion and related land use conditions on the Lloyd shoals reservoir watershed, Georgia. [P H Montgomery; United States. Soil Conservation Service.] -- Soil erosion has caused widespread and serious damage in the southern Piedmont.

The Lloyd Shoals Hydroelectric Project has a generating capacity of 18 megawatts and consists of Lloyd Shoals powerhouse and dam and the project reservoir, Lake Jackson. Water used for energy generation at Lloyd Shoals powerhouse comes from rain that falls in the Ocmulgee River basin upstream of Lloyd Shoals dam.

Soil erosion and transport is a complex process that is influenced by soil type, topography, climate, and land use. In areas where soil, climate, and topography are similar, differences in erosion rates are commonly related to land use.

For exam-ple, in Malaysia, the rate of soil erosion increased from t ha-1 yr-1 under natural forest to Cited by: A physically distributed soil erosion model WaTEM/SEDEM that has been calibrated and validated using 25 reservoir SYs in the study area was applied using nine land use scenarios (land uses inandeach with 8, 32 and without dams) to assess their impacts on sediment delivery at the Shuangyang catchment ( km 2).

THE EFFECT OF LAND USE AND MANAGEMENT ON EROSION1 E. lL REED• AND J. FALCONER3 PURPOSE OF STUDY During the past years there has been an increased interest in the sub­ ject of soil erosion. Attention has been given to the causes of erosion and the methods of control.

The purpose of this study was to determine in a limited. Many numerical landform evolution models assume that soil erosion by flowing water is either purely detachment‐limited (i.e. erosion rate is related to the shear stress, power, or velocity of the flow) or purely transport‐limited (i.e.

erosion/deposition rate is related to the divergence of shear stress, power, or velocity). The dominant land use types were farmland, grassland and forest in the catchment.

The distribution of land use types corresponding to the soil erosion are shown in Table 3. The research found that the soil erosion modulus varied with land use types in a decreasing order from residential areas>farmland>grassland>forest inand   Land Degradation Soil degradation is the decline in soil quality caused by its improper use, usually for agricultural, pastoral, industrial or urban purposes.

Soil degradation is a serious global environmental problem and may be exacerbated by climate change. It encompasses physical (soil erosion), chemical (salinity and alkalinity, pollution) and biological. Trustees of the Freeholders and Commonality of Town of Southampton v.

Erosion is caused when soil parti - cles are dislodged by water falling on or running across bare soil. Soil particles are carried by runoff and finally deposited in a lake or a stream, or sometimes in a resting place along the way.

Additional definitions are found throughout this book. erosion assessment for alternative best management practices that can be used to facilitate conservation policies (Castillo et al., ; Dabney et al., ; Gao et al., ).

Conceptual watershed models have been developed to assess the effects of changes in land use, land cover, management practices, or climactic conditions on water.

contributes to shoreline erosion by causing the slumping of sediments from high banks (Figure 4). Fig 4. The combination of wave and groundwater erosion on a high bank.

Erosion and sedimentation are two separate, but inter-related processes. Both processes cause different types of environmental damage, and require different control measures to minimize the impacts. Erosion is the process by which the land surface is worn away by the action of wind, water, ice, or gravity.

Wind erosion is a major geomorphological force, especially in arid and semi-arid regions. It is also a major source of land degradation, evaporation, desertification, harmful airborne dust, and crop damage—especially after being increased far above natural rates by human activities such as deforestation, urbanization, and agriculture.

Wind erosion is of two primary varieties:. Walter Dukes, Georgia Power vice president of the Land Department, offered the blessing for the luncheon meal, asking that the company might continue to move forward. During the luncheon, a video of the beginning, construction, and early years of the Lloyd Shoals plant was shown, and a copy of the video was available for those present.Construction Erosion Although erosion on construction sites often affects only a relatively small acreage of land in a watershed, it is a major source of sediment because the potential for erosion on highly disturbed land is commonly times greater than on agricultural land (Brady and Weil, ).

Erosion and sediment damages occur.
