Where will the rate of soil erosion be faster?


Soil erosion is much accelerated in hilly and mountainous regions.

Soil erosion

Soil erosion is the natural process in which the topsoil of a field is carried away by physical sources such as wind and water.

  • The wearing away of the topsoil is a normal phenomenon, but human activities have enhanced it.
  • It is normally caused by the removal of vegetation or some other practice that causes the field to become dry.
  • Soil erosion is caused by farming, grazing, mining, building, and recreational activities, to name a few.
  • Soil erosion has far-reaching consequences that go beyond land loss. It has resulted in a significant rise in waste and sedimentation in rivers, clogging water sources and causing a decrease in aquatic organism populations.
  • Floods occur when degraded lands lose their ability to retain water.
