Abstract

The spatial variability of soil aggregate stability and its relationship to runoff and soil erosion were examined in a catena of soils and vegetation in a semi-arid environment at the Rambla Honda field site (Tabernas, Almería) to evaluate the validity of structural stability as a soil erosion indicator in sandy loam range soils. The most significant correlation found was between the number of drop impacts and soil organic matter content. The stability of topsoil aggregates seems to be a valuable indicator of field-assessed runoff and inter-rill erosion of sandy loam range soils under semi-arid conditions
