1. 12/1/1993 This set of information has been put together for those of you wanting more detailed information of vetiver technology, and access to some of the papers submitted for the 1993 vetiver awards. Mos of the papers are backed by a lot of photographs.
  2. The research reported here aimed to collect basic information on the characteristics of erosion processes in a defined area of the Andean zone of Colombia.
  3. This publication is intended to summarize the diffuse literature available on use of terraces in steepland farming systems and present information on the research conducted in southern Honduras on this subject.
  4. Soils are the main terrestrial reservoir of organic carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus. Thus, any type of disturbance, e.g. landuse changes, that alters soil integrity is a threat to planetaryscale biogeochemical cycles that sustain the life-support systems of the Earth. Soil erosion impacts the...
  5. 20/1/2019 Despite almost a century of research and extension efforts, soil erosion by water, wind and tillage continues to be the greatest threat to soil health and soil ecosystem services in many regions of the world. Our understanding of the physical processes of erosion and the controls on those...
  6. Si bien el conocimiento de la forma en que se produce la erosión del suelo y cómo controlarla está firmemente establecido, se necesita más investigación sobre la forma de medir las tasas de pérdida de suelo y el presupuesto de las medidas para reducirlas siguen siendo objeto de debate. De hecho,...
  7. 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...
  8. Abstract, Land Degradation and Development 2018 Soils are vital for supporting food security and other ecosystem services. Climate change can affect soil functions both directly and indirectly. Direct effects include temperature, precipitation, and moisture regime changes. Indirect effects...
  9. 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...
  10. Abstract, Science Advances, 2018 Understanding of the processes governing soil organic carbon turnover is confounded by the fact that C feedbacks driven by soil erosion have not yet been fully explored at large scale. However, in a changing climate, variation in rainfall erosivity (and hence soil...
