It is well known in India at least that the Punjab has been paying serious attention to its soil conservation problems during recent years, as Author: H.

Champion. Soil Erosion in Punjab. Soil erosion map of Punjab highlights the degree of soil erosion caused by water in the state. The values of soil loss per annum from each grid location were quantified using universal soil loss equation (USLE) and used in GIS for preparing the soil erosion map of Punjab.

The book is subdivided into fourteen chapters, sorted in four sections, grouping different facets of the topic: introductive case studies, erosion management in vineyards, soil erosion issue in dry environments, and erosion control by: 9.

The Punjab is also facing very serious problem of soil erosion by water. It is serious menace in the Shivaliks and Kandi region, along the river courses, streams and choes and in the south western arid and hot region. It is more prevalent in Gurdaspur, Nawashehar, Hoshiarpur and Ropar districts of north-eastern.

This book focuses on the process of soil erosion and erosion-control principles independent of land use. Coverage includes the primary factors that influence soil erosion, various types of erosion, erosion-prediction technology, erosion measurements, erosion and sediment control, and conservation of the s: 1.

Soil. Soil is the end product of the parent material resulting from the consistent influence of climate, topography and the natural vegetation over a long period of time. In Punjab the soil characteristics are influenced to a very limited extent by.

Soil erosion is the process of detachment, transportation and deposition of soil particles from land es or the energy sources involved in the process of soil erosion are mainly water, wind, sea waves, human beings and animals (Judson, ; Merritt et al., ).

Water erosion is prominent on steep slopes such as the Potohar track and surrounding areas, an area extensively used for cultivation.

The highest recorded rate of erosion is estimated to be tonnes/hectare/year. Punjab: 3 Killed in Ferozepur in Soil Erosion While Repairing Khooi Punjab is facing severe ground water depletion crisis as the state's river is allocated to non-riparian states like Rajasthan, Delhi and Haryana by the Indian state.

Soil Erosion and Conservation provides a comprehensive treatment of the processes of soil erosion, the methods that can be used for their control, and the issues involved in designing and implementing soil conservation programmes.

Features of the third edition of this internationally recognised textbook include: New material on gully erosion, tillage practices, erosion risk.

Soil erosion occurs when soil is removed through the action of wind and water at a greater rate than it is formed SOIL The soil covering the surface of the earth has taken millions of years to form and we must learn to respect it.

Soil is formed at a rate of only 1 cm every well as by studying soil properties. Water Erosion Water erosion results from the removal of soil material by flowing water. A part of the process is the detachment of soil material by the impact of raindrops.

The soil material is suspended in runoff water and carried away. Deforestation, overgrazing and shifting cultivation are responsible for soil erosion in large areas.

The chhos of Punjab and Haryana and the ravines of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh have resulted, to a certain extent, due to reckless cutting of forests in these areas.

Soil erosion is the displacement of the upper layer of soil, it is one form of soil degradation.

This natural process is caused by the dynamic activity of erosive agents, that is, water, ice (glaciers), snow, air (wind), plants, animals, and humans. The rainfed Pothwar area of Pakistan is one of the most eroded areas where 20% of the total land is affected by soil erosion and billion cubic meter of water is lost from surface runoff annually.

Soil erosion affects a large part of the Earth surface, and accelerated soil erosion is recognized as one of the main soil threats, compromising soil productive and protective functions. The land management in areas affected by soil erosion is a relevant issue for landscape and ecosystems preservation.

In this book we collected a series of papers on erosion, not focusing on Cited by: Despite years of study and substantial investment in remediation and prevention, soil erosion continues to be a major environmental problem with regard to land use in India and elsewhere around the world.

Furthermore, changing climate and/or weather patterns are exacerbating the problem. Our objective was to review past and current soil conservation programmes in India Cited by: 8.

This is largely owing to the fertile soil of Punjab. The Services of soil & water conservation are provided by the Directorate of Soil Conservation Punjab, Rawalpindi in the Barani and hill torrent areas of the Punjab. Soil and water conservation services to the farmers for agricultural purpose are provided through District Officers Soil Conservation on subsidized rates.

Soil erosion occurs mainly during the rainy season in the form of water erosion. Rills, gullies and brown rivers full of sediment show that a lot of soil is carried away and lost for agricul-tural production.

Most soil erosion occurs on cultivated land in the form of sheet and rill erosion. i want thes book can you give me please. Selected pages.

The submontaneous tract of Punjab comprising 10% of the state, is prone to soil erosion by water. Soils of the area are coarse in texture, low in organic matter and poor in fertility.

High intensity rains during the monsoon season result in fertile topsoil by: Soil texture, content of organic carbon, bulk density, initial water content and sediment concentration from runoff samples were analyzed in laboratory.

Modelling parameters for the physically based soil erosion modelling tool EROSION 3D were determined from the rainfall experiments and compared with an existing parameter catalogue. Soil erosion 1. Soil Erosion 2. Introduction: Soil Erosion Soil erosion is the washing or blowing away (by wind or water) of the top layer of soil (dirt).

Erosion also leaves large holes in the earth, which can weaken buildings and even cause them to collapse. Soil erosion is a natural process. Soil salinity, a major constraint to irrigated agriculture in the Punjab region of Pakistan: Contributing factors and strategies for amelioration - Volume 15 Issue 4 - Cited by: Examples where erosion has reached the severe degree, leading to abandonment of land, include parts of the hill areas of Sri Lanka (Stocking, ; Sri Lanka, Natural Resources, Energy and Science Authority,p), and the Pothwar Plateau of the Punjab region of Pakistan¹ (Nizami and Shafiq, ).

Crosson () suggests that recent rates of land that land degradation is so bad that it has negated degradation and particularly soil erosion have had many of the gains in land productivity of recent only a small impact on productivity, and argues that decades.

The Shivalik hills stretch about km in southern part of Himalaya. The northwestern Indian state Punjab encloses a small part of these hills. Land use in the Punjabi part is dominated by shrubland and agriculture.

Soil erosion is a severe problem in this region due to highly erodible soils and heavy rainstorm events during monsoon season from July to September. Soil erosion is taking place at an alarming rate and is mainly due to deforestation in the north. Water erosion is prominent on steep slopes such as the Potohar track and surrounding areas, an area extensively used for cultivation.

The highest recorded rate of erosion is estimated to be tons/hectare/year. Punjab Agricultural University (PAU) as established in to serve the state of erstwhile Punjab. The Punjab Agricultural University now has five constituent colleges, viz.
