Abstract

Four large-scale rainfall simulation experiments were conducted in Spain, at 2 locations: El Ardal, (Murcia) and Majadillas, (Cuenca), to improve the understanding of the relationship between soil water dynamics, soil erosion and land degradation. On different shrublands and an abandonned field, hydrological characteristics were determined in relation to spatial patterns in soil vegetation and morphology. In these environments a scaled approach needs to be adopted emphasizing the importance of different hydrological processes at different scales
