This study was conducted to investigate the effect of slope gradient on soil erosion and determine the splash contribution to interrill erosion at short steep slopes. An experimental device was used to make simultaneous measurements of interrill splash and wash at various slopes under a constant rainfall intensity in a laboratory setting. The results indicate that upslope splash loss was a very important component of the total splash loss on gentle slopes and may be neglected on slopes greater than 36%. Splash transport was a significant part of interrill sediment delivery at short steep slopes
