Size distribution of particles transported in rill and interrill flow

Paper, American Society of Agricultural Engineers (2535): 17

Size distribution of particles transported in rill and interrill flow

Size distributions of eroded sediment were measured under simulated rainfall conditions on field plots with corn residue rates ranging from 0.00 to 6.73 t/ha. The soil used was a Monona silt loam located in southwestern Iowa. Sediment-size distributions were determined at selected slope lengths on both rill and interrill areas.
