Abstract

The effect of slope on soil loss from disturbed lands appears to be well described by a linear function for slopes from 5 to 30 percent. However, the parameters of the slope function appear to be affected by soil type, antecedent moisture, tillage and rainfall simulation. A range of parameters is given to describe the range of slope effects which may be observed in the field.
