The Soil Erosion Jelmarie Cerillo Velacruz Ab English Language II
What is Soil Erosion? Loss and displacement of earths fertile topsoil Soil is naturally removed by the action of water or wind: such 'background' (or 'geological') soil erosion has been occurring for some 450 million years
Phisical Causes of Erosion wind By waterfall Both rainfall and runoff factors must be considered in assessing a water erosion problem. The impact of raindrops on the soil surface can break down soil aggregates and disperse the aggregate material.
Manifestation of Human ActsCausing Soil ERosion Deforestion Overgazing Over cropping
Principal Effect Of Soil Erosion Deterioration of agricultural lands. Increase of flood occurence. Reduce Water supply Sintatics of reservoirs canals and rivers. Destruction of blags roads, and public works. Depletion of wild life and other natural resources.
Activities Of Man Contributing to soil Erosion and disruption of earth surface
Agricultural Distturtion Logging Farming
Catle Ranching Hydroelectri desert
Disruption of Landscape Surface Mining Strip mining
Conclusion Because of continued advances in soil management and crop production technology that have maintained or increased yields in spite of soil erosion, others have not been aware of the increasing problem on farmland. Awareness usually occurs only when property is damaged and productive areas of soil are lost.
Additional Knowledge The implications of soil erosion extend beyond the removal of valuable topsoil. Crop emergence, growth and yield are directly affected through the loss of natural nutrients and applied fertilizers with the soil. Soil quality, structure, stability and texture can be affected by the loss of soil
