Rosewell CJ, Loch RJ (2002) Estimation of the RUSLE soil erodibility
factor (K) is determined from the soil type, and the management and practices factors (C and P) are estimated from tables of values associated with management and practice descriptions.
The positive directions of the x- and v-axes can explain the degree of soil erodibility
and amendment with zeolite, respectively, since the gathering scatter of AZ contents and CEC, and SL and SC were distributed on the positive x- and y-axes, respectively (Fig.

of selected Hawaii soils by rainfall simulation.
These grazing erosion trials, other than Carroll (2004), did not include bare plots that can be used to define soil erodibility
These results suggest that soil erodibility
is higher in winter (by a factor of 2-3), which is consistent with the results from the small rainfall simulator and earlier studies (Elliott et al.
1987) Cummings (1981) 12 a varies from 25 to 125, b is a soil specific constant related to erodibility

The rainfall erodibility
factor (R) is a key factor influencing soil erosion as it contributes 50-70% of soil erosion in the TGRA (Duet al.
(K factors) and cover-soil loss relationships.
Diaz-Fierros F, Benito E, Soto B (1994) Action of forest fires on vegetation cover and soil erodibility
Burning of pasture is commonly practised in many parts of the world for its perceived ability to improve pasture quality and palatability, reduce woody shrubs, control weeds, and increase nutrient supply (see for example Svejcar 1989; Orr and Paton 1997) However, burning is known to affect soil erodibility
and runoff quality (DeBano et al.
This study was conducted to investigate temporal variations in rill erodibility
of concentrated flow erosion, and to quantify the potential effects of root density on seasonal changes in rill erodibility
using undisturbed soil samples taken from switchgrass (Panicum virgatum L.
