Abstract

Simultaneous measurements of rainsplash (as a surrogate for total raindrop detachment) and erosion were made during two rainfall simulation experiments on an 18 by 29 m runoff plot located in an interrill area on a semi-arid, grassland hillslope in southern Arizona. The temporal variation in splash was found to be more complex than hitherto reported. Prediction of interrill soil erosion should not be based upon the assumption that the rate of sediment detachment by raindrops determines the rate of erosion, but upon the interactions among raindrop detachment, overland-flow distribution and groud-surface characteristics
