Abstract

The AA. try to establish the influence of both major micro-relief patterns and soil thickness on runoff related processes occuring at hillslope scale within a few hectares catchment in Tabernas badlands. Sixteen representative surface morphologies have been selected and the following surface properties, as variables under study, have been measured : surface area occupied by cracks, rock fragments, lichens, and plants; also the surface roughness under dry conditions (before rainfall). The relationships of that set of variables with infiltration and erosion have been investigated. The results are interpreted considering soil and/or regolith thickness
