The aims of this study were (1) to quantify cumulative erosion and recent erosion rates of bulk soil (2) to quantify cumulative eroded SOC and (3) to estimate the proportions of water and tillage induced soil erosion after land use change from primary forest to continuous maize cultivation for up to 21 years. Soil erosion rates were determined by 137Cs. The research area was located in the Yen Chau District in NW Vietnam. Cumulative soil C erosion was reliably determined with the new CIDE (carbon, input, decomposition, and erosion) approach. It is highlighted that to prevent further soil degradation, erosion protection measures should be implemented
