These results are very similar to those obtained in similar equipment and experimental conditions by Singer and Walker (1983), who found that, at the same slope, rate of soil loss was much higher for a podzolic (Albaqualf) if all water was applied as rainfall, compared with all as overland flow, whereas there was little difference for a poorly sorted sand, just as in Fig.
