Demonstration Erosion Control Home
- The Demonstration Erosion Control (DEC) project investigates the effectiveness of reducing erosion, sedimentation, and flooding.
Erosion and Soil and Water Conservation Group
- Information on this group based at Wageningen University which focuses on education and research into preventing, reducing or recovering losses of soil, water and plant nutrients.
Erosion processes and modelling
- Provides information on the processes and modelling of raindrop impact induced erosion and the modelling of erosion in catchments (watersheds)
Geoindicators: Soil and Sediment Erosion
- Basic information about erosion patterns, causes, and solutions.
Ground Cover Plants
- Provides details of over 250 types of plants that can be used for ground cover and to prevent erosion.
International Erosion Control Association
- Provides education, resource information and business opportunities for professionals in the erosion and sediment control industry.
National Sedimentation Laboratory
- It emphasizes research dealing with soil erosion; transport and deposition of sediment; movement of chemicals on upland areas and in streams; the impact of agricultural practices, in-stream structures, and bank protection on these processes; water quality; and the ecological well-being of streams.
National Soil Erosion Research Laboratory
- US Department of Agriculture research lab focusing on fundamental erosion process research, erosion control research and delivery of improved erosion prediction technology.
The National Soil Tilth Laboratory
- Research focuses on the areas of soil and water quality, agricultural systems, swine odor and manure management, and agricultural land and water management.
- Chemical agricultural practices are contributing to global warming, climate change, weather pattern disruption, erosion, and starvation.
Permanent Cover Cropping System, Steve Groff, Cedar Meadow Farm
- This site covers innovative practices and cropping strategies to increase profits and greatly reduce soil erosion and pesticides.
Redwood-Cottonwood Rivers Control Area
- Non-regulatory organization that works to enhance and protect the Redwood and Cottonwood Rivers. Journals, technical information, news, events, images, and details of how to get involved.
Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation 2 - Overview of RUSLE2
- Computer program that estimates rates of soil erosion caused by rainfall and associated overland flow. Free download available together with documentation and manuals.
Serious Erosion Areas
- A look at some of the serious erosion areas in the United States.
Soil and Water Conservation Society
- The Soil and Water Conservation Society is an international organization that fosters the science and the art of soil and water conservation to achieve sustained use of land resources.
