      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 ...
    • A5. Identifying Susceptible Areas for Gully Erosion Using a Geospatial Analysis 

      Tebebu, Tigist Y; DeGloria, Stephen D.; Steenhuis, Tammo S (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      Many studies have noted that gully erosion, the severe stage of soil erosion, has become one of the most challenging environmental problems restricting the long term productivity agriculture and water quality in developing ...
    • I1. Inferring Species-­Richness and Species-turnover by Statistical Multiresolution Texture Analysis of Satellite Imagery 

      Convertino, M.; Lowry, N.C.; Linkov, I.; Mangoubi, R.; Desai, M. (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      The quantification of species-richness and turnover is one of the most important tasks in monitoring ecosystems. This is both for guaranteeing ecosystem function, and to understand the linkages between natural and human ...
