The study used geological surveys to produce an erodibility
Soil erosion receives between 0 and 100 points; the allocation of points exhibits sharply diminishing marginal returns, with no points awarded for an erodibility
index below 4, 79 points for an erodibility
index of 4, 92 points for an erodibility
index of 5, and 97-100 points for erodibility
indexes of 6-9.
The various soil parameters included soil moisture, soil water storage, scale depth, soil surface properties (crust storage) and erodibility
Oklahoma State University and Kansas State University faculty members and graduate students work together to measure soil erodibility
using the Jet Erosion Test (JET) device in the Fort Cobb Reservoir watershed in Oklahoma.
The main aim of this research is to quantify the soil erosion in Wadi Yalamlam through examining the soil erodibility
K-factor under different levels of soil data availability using the RUSLE model.
From a geotechnical point of view, erodibility
characterizes the susceptibility of a soil to erosive action.
For instance, the disturbance associated with construction frequently exposes the subsoil (or new soil may be brought in from elsewhere) hence the erodibility
values along the road will differ to those of the region (Barrett et al.
Soil surface horizon Kw, the soil erodibility
factor of the Revised Universal Loss Equation, was used to estimate the potential soil susceptibility to erosion, disaggregation and physical crust formation (USDA-NRCS 2014).
Modeling changes in rill erodibility
and critical shear stress on native surface roads.
The equation components include: potential average annual soil loss in tons per acre per year (A); rainfall erosivity factor (R); the soil erodibility
factor (K); the lengthslope factor (LS); and crop management factors (C and P) that were provided by the Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD).
Determination of erodibility
degree of soils with use of hydro-physical characteristics (on the example of zonal types of soils of the Chuvash Republic).
