Rapid assessment of gully sidewall erosion rates in data-poor catchments: A case study in Australia

Whitford, J; Newham, Lachlan; Vigiak, O; Melland, A R; Roberts, A M

Description

Knowledge of erosion rates and sediment yields from gullies is critical for the effective prioritisation of management efforts aimed at reducing the impact of gully-derived sediments on water quality. This paper describes a rapid assessment method for estimating sidewall gully erosion rates for already established gully networks. It combines a conceptual-empirical model of the cycle of gully initiation and stabilisation with an easy-to-apply technique for assessing gully extent and dimensions....[Show more]
