About Lesson

Brian Carson (1985) mentioned the following effect of soil erosion.


a) Erosion loosed top-soils from the cultivated and grazing land as a result of which soil fertility declines and reducing productive capacity of the affected land.

b) Landslides cause serious destruction of land, irrigation systems, roads and foot trials.

c) Erosion brings sediment loads to the river which reduces storage capacity of reservoir, siltation of irrigation channels and damaged the water controlled structures and often changes the course of river.
