Estimation of quality of soil degradated by water erosion using integral indicator

Cover Page

Abstract


For estimation of quality of soil, degradated by water erosion, the integral indicator based on assessment of humus layer thickness, slope angle, soil organic matter content, microbial biomass and plants characteristics is suggested. The use of this indicator permits to reveal the differences in erosion level of soils which have the equal thickness of humus layer but are situated on different parts of slope.
