Abstract

Runoff and infiltration were investigated on abandoned fields of patchy vegetation in semi-arid Spain during 15 months of natural rainfall and by rainfall simulations. The aim was to ascertain sources and sinks of runoff and the effects of soils and plant cover. The results presented in this paper are specific for restricted areas in different slope situations: soils of the catena developed from mica shists of the upper hillslopes, fan deposits of the lower hillslopes, and an alluvial terrace at the bottom
