How rain intensity affects interrill erosion

How rain intensity affects interrill erosion

ASAE Paper (80-2503): 12 pp

The effect of rain intensity on interrill erosion was studied on crop row side slopes of farm fields using simulated rainfall. For a wide range of soils and cropping conditions, erosion (E) was related to intensity (I) as the power equation, E=aIb. The exponent b decreased from slightly above 2.0 for soils of low clay content to about 1.6 for soils near 50% clay.
