Talwegerosion on arable land by water inflow from grassland
Soil erosion diminishes functioning of soil and water and is seen as the greatest threat to soil on a global basis. At present we focus our activities in soil erosion research at:
Rainfall Simulation | experiments allow to measure runoff and soil loss on small plots. They can be performed under heavily controlled conditions.
Plot Experiments | enable to measure runoff and soil loss up to field sized areas. Control of influencing factors is only partially possible.
Watersheds | are hydrologically closed units which we monitor in order to measure water flow and sediment production at scale levels which are relevant for regional water, sediment and nutrient management.
Modelling | The data gathered at different scale levels are used to develop improve and apply erosion and transport models.
