Soil Erosion in Europe by John Boardman

Book Description

Provides a unique and comprehensive assessment of soil erosion throughout Europe, an important aspect to control and manage if landscapes are to be sustained for the future. Written in two parts, Soil Erosion in Europe primarily focuses on current issues, area specific soil erosion rates, on and off-site impacts, government responses, soil conservation measures, and soil erosion risk maps. The first part overviews the erosion processes and the problems encountered within each European country, whilst the second section takes a cross-cutting theme approach. * Based on an EU-funded project that has been running for four years with erosion scientists from 19 countries * Reviews contemporary erosion processes and rates on arable and rangeland in Europe * Looks at current issues, such as socio-economic drivers, controlling factors specific to the country and changes in land use
