Title: Rill erosion in natural and disturbed forests: 1. Measurements

Author: Robichaud, P. R.; Wagenbrenner, J. W.; Brown, R. E.

Date: 2010

Source: Water Resources Research. 46: W10506.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Rill erosion can be a large portion of the total erosion in disturbed forests, but measurements of the runoff and erosion at the rill scale are uncommon. Simulated rill erosion experiments were conducted in two forested areas in the northwestern United States on slopes ranging from 18 to 79%. We compared runoff rates, runoff velocities, and sediment flux rates from natural (undisturbed) forests and in forests either burned at low soil burn severity (10 months or 2 weeks post?fire), high soil burn severity, or subject to skidding of felled logs.

Keywords: rill erosion, runoff, forest management
