DEFINITION AND TYPES OF SOIL EROSION MANJINDER KAUR
OVER LOOK OVER SOIL EROSION - The removal of soil by water and wind. - Geological erosion due to action of water, wind, gravity and glaciers. - Its very slow process. - Also referred as normal erosion. .Loss of soil is compensated for the formation of new soil
Accelerated erosion caused by disturbances of people. & Such as cutting forests, cultivating lands, constructing roads and buildings. * lt increases as population increases. *lts very fast process ** It is also refered as abnormal erosion.
It is impossible to stop all erosion completely, but can be minimised Techniques to control water and wind erosion usually result in maintaining or increasing soil productivity.
DEFINITION It can be defined as the detachment and transportation of soil mass from one place to another through the action of water in motion or by the bating action of rain drops. It occurs in low humus soil and higher percentage of silt and very fine sand. - It increases when soil remains bare
TYPES Natural or geological (low rated) Accelerated (fast rated) water erosion Raindrop splash Sheet Rill Gully stream channel Wind erosion Saltation Suspension Surface creep
