Abstract

This study develops a new magnetic tracer technique for measuring the movement of sediment caused by water erosion. The AA. set out to develop a synthetically constructed, magnetic material which moves with the soil during erosion events, and which can be measured with a magnetometer before and after erosion events. This technique has several potential advantages over current sediment tracer techniques. Magnetometer readings are taken from the soil surfaces in a completely non-destructive manner. This paper deals with the basic preliminary studies of the construction of the synthetic beads and their basic response to rill and interrill erosion processes
