Abstract

It has generally been assumed that diffusive sediment transport on soil-mantled hillslopes is linearly dependent on hillslope gradient. Fieldwork was done near Santa Barbara, California, to develop a sediment transport equation for bioturbation by a pocket gopher and to determine whether it supports linear diffusion. This equation suggests a non-linear relationship between hillslope gradient and sediment flux. The non-linear case more closely resembles the actual profile with a convex cap at the divide leading into a straight midslope section
