Abstract

[automatically translated] The survey was carried out an experimental determination of the soil erodibility factor, K, of the USLE based on measurements made in the clay soil of Sparacia. The average annual value of this factor, measured on long parcels, , between 11 and 44 m, was descending with . The indirect estimation of erodibility factor was 46% lower than the value measured in the reference parcel, that is 22 m long, and has held steady at an intermediate value between the measurements of K obtained in the plots of 33 and 44 m. A similar scale effect was also recognized with reference to those of the seasonal and annual values of erodibility factor. For all the parcels, erodibility was higher in the dry season than in the wet.
