Abstract

An empirical approach was used to examine the morphology and behaviour of gullies along the eastern shoreline of Lake Huron, Canada. Gully and watershed dimensions and percentage vegetation cover of a sample of 44 gullies were measured from aerial photographs between 1930 and 1992. Larger gullies continue to expand over time while small gullies are more likely to become stable. Growth rates increased between 1955 and 1978. After 1970, efforts to rehabilitate gullies using drain pipes and check dams contributed to a decrease in gully growth rates
