Soil erosion on cultivated foothill slopes during extreme rainfall events in the Wi¦nicz Foothills of Southern Poland

¦więchowicz J., 2008, Soil erosion on cultivated foothill slopes during extreme rainfall events in the Wi¦nicz Foothills of Southern Poland, Folia Geographica ser. Geographica-Physica, vol. XXXIX (39): 79-93.

Keywords: extreme rainfall events, soil erosion, rill erosion, Carpathian Foothills, southern Poland

Summary: On cultivated foothill slopes soil erosion resulting from short-duration, high-intensity events leads to a distinct transformation of foothill slopes and causes damage to agriculture. The process of intensified water erosion is more significant on commercial farms with a large acreage of crops. This paper presents the geomorphic and economic consequences of three extreme rainfall events which took place at the Jagiellonian University's farmland in the Wi¶nicz Foothills of southern Poland in 2002-2006, giving special attention to the influence of land-use patterns on surface and rill erosion processes. Soil erosion by extreme rainfall means the transport of the suspended material downslope and its deposition at the foot of the slopes and in valley bottoms. The resulting loss of soil from farmland may be reflected in the farm's production capacity, triggering an immediate loss of crop in the short term and reduction of yields in the longer term.
