  • European Environment Agency : Soil erosion


    European Environment Agency (EEA)


    Soil erosion rates and extent are expected to reflect changing patterns of land-use and climate change. Variations in rainfall patterns and intensity, and in storm frequency and intensity may affect erosion risk either directly, through the physical displacement of soil particles, or indirectly, through removing protective plant cover. Available European case studies suggest that climate change may increase as well as decrease soil erosion, depending on local climatological and environmental conditions. However, reliable quantitative pan-European projections for soil erosion are currently not available.
