Accelerated erosion has taken place on extensive areas of range-watershed land in the Great Basin and constitutes an important factor in watershed management. This paper shows that soils can be classified in the field with a high degree of consistency into three groups representing geologic normal erosion and moderate and severe deviation therefrom, and indicates the effect of varying degrees of erosion on organic matter, total nitrogen, and moisture equivalent. Accelerated erosion is most pronounced on areas that have been heavily grazed and is much more severe on south-facing than on north-facing slopes. Its control is of major importance to the social and economic welfare of dependent communities.
