TOY T. J. ;


Examination of the data by hillslope element and segment show that, based upon average values, the concave elements of natural and reclaimed hillslope experience the highest rate of sheetwash erosion. Again, however, there is considerable variation about the average and considerable erosion can occur in any element or segment of particular hillslopes. Lastly, there are seasonal oscillations of hillslope surface elevation with frost-heaving prevalent during the late autumn to early spring months and erosion prevalent during the late spring to early autumn months
