Description

Off‐site impacts of soil erosion are of greater social and economic concern in Western Europe than on‐site impacts. John Boardman will set out the two related categories these impacts fall into: muddy flooding of properties and ecological impacts on watercourses because of excessive sedimentation and associated pollutants. He will argue that well‐ connected systems causing off‐site damage are not necessarily related to areas of high erosion rates and that emphasis should be on the way in which connections occur. He will suggest that field mapping
