The second group puts a special focus on planning processes in different states. The t...
Poster
The difficulty in measuring hydraulic erosion processes during runoff events at field condition necessitates the use of spatial topographic and micro-topographic factors to characterize rill initiation. Yet, the spatial rill formation and development are poorly understood at field condition where these factors are more complex, and occur at differe...

Poster
Rill initiation is geomorphologically important as sediment transport rates increase rapidly once rill incision occurs. It is controlled by slope steepness, contributing area and surface microtopography. Rill initiation has been predicted using inverse relation between unit contributing area and critical slope gradient. However, research results in...
