Abstract

This introductory paper reviews various aspects of rock fragments in top soils. Such information is required in particular for predicting the impact of climatic or landuse changes on the response of these soils. Particular attention is paid to the definition and measurement of rock fragment content in top soils, the density of soils containing rock fragments, the spatial distribution and movement of rock fragments in top soils, the effects of rock fragments on some key hydrological processes, thermal properties of top soils, physical soil degradation, soil erosion and soil productivity
