Abstract

This paper aims to propose a non-linear technique based on fractal method for describing gully-head changes quantitatively, and carried out a case study in the Yuanmou Basin in the Longchuan River Valley, Yunnan Province. Seventy-seven gullies under 5 different land-uses were investigated in 1998 and again in 2002. The results suggested that the 3 parameters proposed can sensitively reflect the gully-head changes associated with land-use, and may be used as feasible parameters for understanding and predicting gully development under land-use change and global change
