Abstract:

Evans’ (1971) seminal paper was the first to describe contemporary erosion in Britain in the uplands, and erosion due to wind and water in the arable lowlands. Since then, the emphasis of publications on British erosion has shifted to the quantification of water erosion on arable land and to off–site impacts, including property damage and pollution of watercourses. The need for soil conservation in Britain, originally advanced by Evans, is now primarily interpreted as a need for protection against muddy runoff.
