Use of soil horizons for assessing soil degradation and reconstructing chronology of degradation processes : the case of Mwisanga catchment, Kondoa, central Tanzania

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper analyses the use of soil horizons for mapping soil degradation intensity and reconstructing chronology of degradation processes. Through Pedogenetic Baseline Approach, the catchment was classified into 2 categories : the erosional and depositional zones. The study underscores the importance of being able to reconstruct soil properties of pre-eroded soil profiles with the view to determining erosion units. This will eventually help in developing appropriate land use and conservation strategies
