Structural controls on the orientation of erosion gullies in mid-western New South Wales, Australia

Beavis, Sara


The role of geology in determining the drainage network of gullying has been evaluated by quantitative methods of analysis. At gully erosion sites in New South Wales, field evidence suggests that soil cracks are sites of preferential flow and erosion at both the surface and subsurface. Soil fabric and rock structure and weathering studies were undertaken to establish the inheritance of soil cracks from the underlying parent material. Gully orientation was correlated with the strike of joints...[Show more]
