Description:

Soil erosion - causitive factors, extent and prevention.

Summary / Notes:

A short overview is given of the extent of soil erosion (both wind and water erosion) in Namibia. The different types of erosion, as well as severity classifications, are explained using the definitions used by SOTER. The factors contributing to erosion, viz. rainfall energy, rainfall interception by vegetation, slopes and soil types, are discussed with examples. A few telltale signs of erosion are discussed and illustrated, and the negative effect of erosion on the production of natural vegetation highlighted. A few preventative measures for especially sheet erosion are listed.
