For sophomore/senior-level courses in Soil Conservation and Water Conservation in Agronomy or Soil Science Departments. Written from an agronomic - rather than an engineering perspective, this introduction to soil and water conservation explores a full range of topics and environmental issues, including some ignored or overlooked in other texts on the subject. Comprehensive, up-to-date, and accessible, it considers the hazards posed by erosion, sedimentation, and pollution, and describes the techniques needed to conserve soil and maintain environmental quality. Situations and examples are drawn from many places to represent a cross-section of the soils, climates and cultures of the world, as well as the full scope of agricultural, engineering, mining, and other uses of the land.

From the Back Cover:

Written from an agronomic — rather than an engineering — perspective, this comprehensive, up-to-date introduction to soil and water conservation explores a full range of topics and environmental issues, including some ignored or overlooked in other books on the subject. Considers the hazards posed by erosion, sedimentation, and pollution, and describes the techniques needed to conserve soil and maintain environmental quality. Draws situations and examples from many places to represent a cross-section of the soils, climates and cultures of the world, as well as the full scope of agricultural, engineering, mining, and other uses of the land. Covers the use of the soil loss equations for water erosion and wind erosion in detail — an important base for management decisions regarding the most appropriate choices of conservation practices to solve erosion problems. Examines recent concerns about various forms of pollution and provides means for predicting soil erosion and evaluating erosion damage and control costs economically. For anyone interested in soil or water conservation -- from an agronomic, rather than an engineering perspective.
