In the severely eroded granitic area of south China, the hillslopes are the source areas of, and the valleys are the sinks for, nutrients, water and sediments. The study of nutrient flux is important from both the soil fertility and water quality perspectives. On denuded slopes, nutrient loss depletes soil fertility and makes afforestation effort difficult. The re-deposition of nutrients bound to the sediments in downslope areas determines the soil fertility in alluviated valleys and the potential for developing these lands for beneficial use. Nutrients transported further down the fluvial system may affect the quality of the receiving water bodies
