The object of this study is the distribution of 'Blaiken' (soil erosion connected with the destruction of vegetation) during 1961 to 1973 in the Kampenwand area (Bavarian Alps). The development and disappearance of Blaiken are not in equilibrium. Those areas which showed Blaiken in 1961 also reveal a general tendency towards increased damage to vegetation and soil. The dynamics of Blaiken vary with height, inclination, exposure, petrography and land use.
