Abstract

This paper presents one approach to identifying hillslopes sensitive to deforestation for farm scale planning. This involves comparing erosion rates on hillslopes under pasture with longer term erosion rates of forested hillslopes. In both cases, erosion rates are related to the slope morphology of drainage basins by developing empirical relationships between erosion indicators, such as landslide scar area or soil residence times, and mean slope angle. By applying these empirical relationships to slope maps derived from digital elevation models (DEMs), it is possible to map landslide hazard, soil properties, and areas sensitive to deforestation
