Abstract

Based on data from the Loess Plateau of China, some non-linear relationships between forest cover, mean annual rainfall erosivity and annual precipitation have been found. A threshold has been identified. Furthermore, 2 thresholds are identified in the relationship between rainall erosivity and annual precipitation. Based on these relationships, the non-linear relationship between erosion intensity and annual precipitation is explained. The implication of these thresholds for erosion control on the Loess plateau is discussed
