Nature's Disappearing Act: What are the Best Methods of Controlling Soil Erosion
Division:Engineering & Computing Sciences
Region:Greater Vancouver
City:Burnaby, BC
School:Moscrop Secondary
Abstract:The goal of this project was to evaluate different methods of controlling soil erosion. The methods were vegetation, wattle fences, and brush layers in a cut (plus a control, which was a plain slope). Using rain and wind, natural conditions were recreated. At the end of the experiment the soil was weighed to calculate total soil erosion.
