Surface runoff, soil loss, suspended sediment concentration (SSC), texture of eroded soils and suspended sediment were determined on slightly eroded chernozems (mouldboard fall-ploughed) during years with different amounts of snow in three areas of southern West Siberia (Predsalairye, Priobye and Kuznetsk hollow). These areas have different geomorphological and climatic characteristics and soils. Observations were made from 1969 to 2007. Soil losses in high-snow and very high-snow years varied from slight to severe depending on studied area. Among the three studied regions, Predsalairye had decreased soil erosion resistance and was the area with the greatest danger of erosion
