Aggregate stability as an indicator of soil susceptibility to runoff and erosion; validation at several levels

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The AA. aim to extend the validity of relationships between soil aggregation and erosion through comparisons of topsoil aggregate stability and field-assessed susceptibility to runoff and erosion. Susceptibility to runoff and erosion was determined at 3 levels : first through measurements of runoff and soil loss from microplots (1 m2) under simulated rainfall in a southern French Regosol; second through 3-year measurements of runoff and soil loss on runoff plots (100-800 m2) in Benin, Cameroon and Mexico, with additional data on Syria from the literature; and lastly, soil susceptibility to erosion was determined through the semi-quantitative assessment of the frequency of erosion features, on vineyard hillslopes in southern France
