  7. Abstract, Environmental Research Letters, 2018 Implementation of socially acceptable and environmentally desirable solutions to soil erosion challenges is often limited by (1) fundamental gaps between the evidence bases of different disciplines and (2) an implementation gap between science-based...  
  8. Abstract, Scientific Reports, 2018 The debate over whether soil erosion is a carbon (C) sink or atmospheric CO2source remains highly controversial. For the first time, we report the magnitude of C stabilization associated with soil erosion control for an entire large river basin. The soil erosion...
