Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine if the relationship between objectively defined landform classes and soil erosion identified by Martz and De Jong (1987) for a small, agricultural Prairie basin, could be exploited in the calculation of soil erosion budgets and sediment yields. The total soil loss from the basin given by the erosion budget agreed closely with the sediment accumulation, also measured using [137]Cs, behind a dam at the basin mouth, and was consistent with the few sediment yield data available for other small Saskatchewan basins
