Abstract

Experiments show that due to the high stability and strong flocculation of clay-rich aggregates rainsplash is ineffective in surface sealing so that infiltration capacities remain high despite intense, prolonged rainfall. North-facing slopes respond more quickly, more frequently and produce more runoff than south-facing slopes. Present-day surface flow must be extremely infrequent and denudation rates very low. -from Authors
