The Soil Erosion Risk Map of the Sicilian Region (1:250,000 Scale)

Risultato della ricerca: Otherpeer review

Abstract

Assessing the risk areas of soil erosion by water at the regional level is relevant for current and future land planning ofenvironmental actions to combat land degradation. The gravity of the risk is not only depending on the rate of soil erosion by water,but also on other factors, primarily soil depth and rock weatherability. The map of the soil erosion risk in the Sicilian region,expressed in terms of years to a complete loss of the fertile soil cover, is here presented as a methodological model. The degree ofrisk was not only estimated in function of the rate of soil erosion by water, but also of the depth of the fertile part of the profile, andof the weatherability degree of the underlying bedrock.
