Abstract

In order to investigate the width-discharge relationships for rills and gullies, a new method is proposed based on field measurements of widths of concentrated-flow erosion channels both upstream and downstream of channel junctions. A total of 322 rill and gully channel junctions with various soils and land use types were investigated in Belgium, Italy and Spain. The obtained data confirmed the existence of the power relationship for rills and gullies, with the exponent varying from 0.43 for small rills to 0.5 for gullies
