Abstract

This paper describes more closely-controlled laboratory rainfall simulation and runoff experiments in Toronto, Canada, carried out to identify the sequential scour and deposition processes involved, which are ultimately responsible for the regular variations in moisture storage capacity. Experimental results indicate that vegetation bands at the scale observed at Baringo (Rift Valley, Kenya) are consistent with development by sequential scour and deposition, caused by some combination of sheetwash, rainsplash and rainflow
