Abstract

Rainfall simulation experiments were used to find a relationship between soil moisture change and sediment concentration behaviour. This relationship appeared to be able to show, in its role as indicator, differences between materials affected by vrious degrees of rill erosion or mass wasting. Indicators explaining this relationship are surface characteristics, runoff and infiltration characteristics and chemical and mineralogical soil properties. From the experimental study it was concluded that the high infiltration capacity in materials affected by mass wasting resulted in an unstable soil and a high degree of erodibility
