  • Constructed wetlands help keep farmland soil out of rivers

    Small, artificial wetlands can reduce river pollution by trapping soil and nutrients swept off agricultural land by rainfall, a recent study finds. The researchers recommend that they are used as a back-up option to soil management measures also designed to reduce runoff into rivers. Intensive agriculture can degrade and erode soil, allowing it to be washed into streams and rivers. This pollutes ...

  • Alpine soils may release carbon following climate change

  • New data on soil erosion by water reveals Mediterranean at highest flood risk

    Rainfall is one of the principle causes of soil erosion. It breaks apart soil, dislodges it from its surroundings, and washes it away as runoff. These mechanisms have an effect on how much water the soil may hold, how fast water flows over the soil, and even on the soil depth. In a much broader sense soil erosion can negatively affect vegetation growth and yields, as well as water quality, and ...
