DescriptionAbstract - The most effective control of erosion, in both physical and economic terms, is through prevention because once natural erosion is accelerated, corrective action is not only expensive but seldom entirely successful. To control erosion it is important to understand the forces that cause material to move or resist movement. Once the forces and processes of erosion are understood, proposed erosion control measures can be evaluated for anticipated effectiveness. The successful control of erosion is as much a philosphical and political problem as a technical one
