Erosion balance and slope evolution under continental humid temperate climate: an Appalachian example (Québec, Canada)

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Solid and dissolved matter net output from a sample slope, subdivided into 5 homogeneous segments, is estimated from multi-annual erosion measurements in a small low-relief watershed covered with till-derived soils. Chemical processes prevail all over, except on the most inclined segments (mainly in the slope inflexion zone). This is consistent with the constantly humid climate, the fresh earth material, and the dense vegetation cover. Polynomial fitting of solute and total losses against slope length and angle are used to predict profile evolution
