      Convertino, M.; Morales, F.; Troccoli, A.; Linkov, I.; Catani, F. (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      Landslides are extremely important geomorphic events which sculpt river basin ecosystems by eroding hillslopes and providing sediments to coastal areas. However, at the same time landslides are hazardous events for ...
    • A1. Modelling hysteresis in sediment transport and continuous distributions of eroded sediment 

      Sander, G.C.; Parlange, J.-Y.; Barry, D.A. (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      Sediment transport hysteresis occurs due to the different sediment fluxes for the same discharge on the rising and falling limb of the overland flow hydrograph. Experimental field data has shown that the common shapes of ...
    • A2. Effect of Rock Fragment Coverage on Soil Erosion 

      Jomaa, S.; Barry, D.A.; Brovelli, A.; Heng, B.C.P.; Sander, G.C.; Parlange, J.-Y. (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      Rain splash soil erosion in the presence of rock fragments was tested in laboratory flume experiments under controlled conditions. The surface area exposed to rain splash erosion was adjusted by placing rock fragments onto ...
    • A2. Influence of Antecedent Moisture Conditions on Inter-rill Soil Erosion 

      van Meerveld, Ilja (H.J.) (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      Few studies have looked at the effects of antecedent soil moisture conditions on inter-rill soil erosion and in many models soil erodability parameters are considered constant, even though it is well known that the soil’s ...
