About this title

Synopsis:

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

From the Back Cover:

This book comes at a time when Europe is developing a coherent soil protection policy. The reform of the Common Agricultural Policy and the new agri-environment measures have put the emphasis on the control of soil erosion and sediment pollution, and the management of European landscapes in a more sustainable manner.

This is a comprehensive assessment of erosion processes, rates, spatial distribution and significance of erosion for Europe, based on an EU-funded project that has been running for nearly four years.

Divided into two sections, the first section looks at a different country for each chapter and provides an overview of the soil erosion processes and problems that affect it. The second section examines soil erosion processes, risk assessment and prediction, and off-site impacts and responses.

  • Consists of two parts: an overview of soil erosion processes and problems in each country; and cross-cutting themes.
  • Presents soil erosion assessments based on field observations and measurements throughout Europe.

This book is valuable reading for postgraduates and researchers in geography, soil science, engineering, hydrology and agriculture. It is also useful reading for professional organisations, policy and decision makers.
