  • Gully and rill erosion: recent research progress (co-organized)

    Soil erosion has been divided traditionally into sheet, rill, and gully erosion. In rills and gullies, overland flow is concentrated, which markedly increases the erosivity of the flow, and can cause then significant incisions into the landscape. Usually rills occur on sloping surfaces, whereas gullies occur within swales or hollows. Concentrated flow erosion represents an important -if not the ...
