Abstract

Gully erosion is an important form of soil erosion that contributes greatly to soil degradation and loss in South Africa. Little is known regarding the spatial extent of gullies at a national level. A gully location map was compiled from SPOT 5 imagery. It was found that gullies are more prominent on land that is suitable for cultivation (4.3%) than on less suitable to unsuitable land (1.5%). Possible reasons are suggested and future programmes indicated. - (AJC)
