The causes of piping in a set of abandoned agricultural terraces in southeast Spain


This study aims to identify some of factors contributing to the piping process in abandoned terraces in 7 sites located in the Murcia Region. The local landscape has the appearance of badland geomorphology, possessing deep valleys which until the 1970s were terraced and cultivated. The terraces have now been abandoned to the piping process. The research focuses on the relationship between the size and position of pipes and the physical and geochemistry properties of the local highly dispersive marl lithology; and the extent to which the reworking of the materials for terrace cultivation has exacerbated piping erosion
