The role of slumps in the changing process of soil formation and soil degradation

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The effects of slumps on soil erosion and soil formation in a Romanian study area, in the Nyárádmagyarós Basin being part of the Nyárádmenti Hills are investigated in the paper. Field and laboratory measurements revealed that slumps particularly intensified linear erosion along the edges of the area of slumps, furthermore, they contributed to the acceleration of erosion in the neighbouring agricultural areas, as well. Slumps contributed to the diversification of the pedological conditions, however, they decreased agricultural usefulness as soils of poor fertility had been formed (stagni-gleyic phaeozems, calcaric regosols). - (AM)
