Abstract

This study analyses frequency-magnitude distributions of rainfall, runoff and erosion from sites in the UK, Belgium, Canada and the USA. Frequency-magnitude distributions of rainfall appear to be a poor predictor of distributions of runoff or soil loss. Site-specific influences appear to affect distributions of erosion to a greater extent than distributions of runoff. The results of this study suggest links with recent theoretical work on self-organised criticality
