Title: Runoff and Erosion Characteristics of a Revegetated Surface Mined Site in Western North Dakota
Author: Gilley, John E.
Description: A rainfall simulator was used to measure runoff and soil loss from undisturbed, harvested, bare and surface mulched treatments on a revegetated, surface mined site. Measured soil losses were greatest on the bare treatment and least on the undisturbed plots. Application of straw mulch reduced erosion by 66 per cent over the bare condition. As vegetation becomes established on surface mined areas, the erodibility of recently top soiled sites will be significantly reduced.
