In this paper, a mechanistic model of the detachment and transport processes associated with raindrops impacting surface water flows is used to examine the effect of slope length on sediment transported by rain-impacted flows on areas varying in length from 2-30 m when runoff is generated uniformly or non-uniformly as slope length varies. Erosion by rain-impacted flow is a complex process and that complexity needs to be considered when analysing the results of experiments associated with rain-impacted flow under both natural and artificial conditions
