Using a structural approach to identify relationships between soil and erosion in a semi-humid forested area, South India


The aim of this study is to identify the dynamic and to present the main factors intrinsic to the soil cover that govern natural erosion on a forest area with a widespread red and black soil system in South India, by using a structural and a spatially distributed approach. Results indicate that both topography and lithology (gneiss and amphibolite) have influenced the distribution of the soils. Three distinctive types of erosional landforms have been identified
