On-site effects of concentrated flow erosion in vineyard fields : some economic implications


This paper applies a method for assessing the topographic changes produced by concentrated flow erosion, mainly ephemeral gullies, and their filling by farmers. The method is based on the comparison of multi-date detailed topographic data (digitale elevation models, DEMs). In the case study, 0.20-m spatial resolution DEMs of March 2000, June 2000 and July 2002 were used to assess the changes in a vineyard field, located in the Penedès region, Catalonia, in which there are hillside ditches (broadbase terraces) that function as sediment traps to avoid major soil loss
