Abstract

The measurements were made on a plot 6 m wide and 22 m long subjected to natural rainfalls in the experimental Sparacia area located in western Sicily. First the contribution of each component (rill and interrill erosion) to total soil loss was established. Then the analysis allowed establishment of a power relationship between the rill length and the rill volume. Finally, for 3 events detailed information on rill erosion and rill morphology allowed verification of the applicability of WEPP and estimation of the rill erodibility constant
