The aim of this study is to examine the detachment and transport capacity of runoff using rainfall simulations and overland flow experiments on small field plots. A simple regression equation was derived to estimate transport capacity (Tc) for both bare and covered soil. Although Tc can be assessed more easily in laboratory experiments, the applicability of the results to field conditions remains questionable. The detachment by runoff constitutes only part of the transported sediment. Interrill erosion supplies an important additional amount of sediment. In this study, however, only sealed soils were considered
