Abstract

This paper reports soil losses from 15 erosion plots in the Middle Hills, Nepal, for the 1992 and 1993 monsoon and pre-monsoon seasons. In total, 912 rainfall events were monitored. Land cover varied from grassland and relatively undisturbed mixed broadleaf forest, to degraded Sal forest and bare ground. Comparisons with the landsliding results, and with the results of previous studies, also are made. Human activity has unquestionably led to accelerated rates of soil loss but the degree of acceleration depends on the nature of the human activity
