Abstract

Soil stratigraphy and morphology in a small agricultural watershed on the coastal plain at Clayroot, North Carolina, indicate long-term, decadal-scale patterns of the redistribution of sediment. The most dramatic truncation of the soil profile occurs on convex upper slopes, and suggests tillage and aeolian erosion as the major processes of soil loss. Soils are thicker immediately downslope from convexities, with thinner soils and rill erosion on lower slopes. The soil redistribution at the Clayroot site is controlled in space and time by topography, soil properties, seasonal moisture, vegetative cover, and tillage practices
