Environmental impacts of soil erosion and soil conservation. A Lesotho case study

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The magnitude of, and causes of, soil and nutrient losses from different land uses in the southern Lesotho lowlands were investigated. This was accomplished by the monitoring of storm runoff from a natural catchment and from erosion plots. The total amount and intensity of rainfall were both measured. The results show a high degree of variability, both in space and time. It is argued that the choice of scale is the most important decision to be made when devising an erosion study. The soil conservation efforts in the study area are deemed effective from an environmental view-point
