In 10 soils from central Greece devoted to cereal cropping, seasonal wet aggregate stability (WAS) fluctuations were investigated over a period of two successive years. The wet-sieving technique of air-dried aggregates was used for WAS determinations under typical Mediterranean climatic conditions. Results and discussion. Knowledge of such variation could help to develop better erosion prediction technologies and design better soil management and erosion control practices, although the relevance between aggregate stability and actual erosion is not always consistent, depending on extreme events, storm aggressiveness, slope and other factors
