dc.description.abstract In the first study the movement of soil in a complex three dimensional landscape typical of southern Ontario is examined using 137Cs as a soil tracer. In the second study summarized in this report, the processes responsible for the severe erosion on upper slope landscape positions, specifically shoulder slopes, are investigated. The hypothesis of which was that the soil being lost on these slope positions is the result of the mechanical action of tillage equipment.
