erosion_rock_type1erosion_rock_type2
Influence of rock type on soil thickness and vulnerability to soil erosion.
erosion by slope
Influence of slope-aspect on vegetation cover and soil vulnerability to water erosion.
badlands kalamatabadlands corintho
Badlands near Kalamata (Messinia) and in Corinth province.
abandoned terraces
Abandoned terraces enhance risk of landslides and soil water erosion.
koronaki1koronaki2
Shallow soils on terraces in the inland of Koronaki (Messinia).
shallow soils
One meter to desertification. Shallow soils (less than 1 meter depht) on hard calcareous rocks, consumed by erosion. Once eroded they cannot regenerate in the human life time.
