In this study of a tropical area of the Mekong Basin, the first aim was to evaluate sediment (SED), soil organic carbon (SOC) and runoff (R) delivery from various spatial scales from 1 m2 to 10 km2. The second aim was to interpret these results in term of erosion processes operating within the landscape and of their main controlling factors. Finally, for assessing erosion dynamics longer term, the results obtained during a single rainy season were compared to the spatial distribution of the thickness and the type of surficial soil materials
