Abstract

In this study, 2 field sites, representing different landscapes in the North American Great Plains, were examined. Water and tillage erosions were estimated using the established water and tillage erosion models and total soil erosion was estimated using the Cs 137 technique. The AA. determined that the patterns of water and tillage erosion across the landscapes are mainly dependent on topographic features and they are fundamentally different within topographically complex landscapes. Most soil properties and crop yield were found to be closely correlated with total soil erosion
