Abstract

Data on magnetic susceptibility (MS) and the contents of spherical magnetic particles (SMPs), magnetic minerals, organic carbon, and particle-size fractions in cultivated and forested varieties of soddy-podzolic and soddy soils forming toposequences on hill slopes are analyzed. The method involving a technogenic magnetic tracer is suggested for a quantitative assessment of soil erosion and aggradation processes and the volumes of transported soil material. This method if based on the estimation of the distribution patterns of SMPs in the soils. The prospects for its application in soil erosion studies are discussed.
