    To estimate average annual volume of runoff and sediment loads entering in Mula Dam reservoir 4. Major scientific fields of interest Application of the study: 1. It is needed for sustainable natural resource development and regional planning. 2. It will help to identify vulnerable areas to soil erosion and how it can be survived through work as contour bunding, check dam, tree plantation (those which survive in the particular geo-climatic conditions). 3. The application of the results will be useful for planning and development to the Government of Maharashtra in the ongoing projects like Jalyukt Shivar Abhiyan and it will also be helpful for NGO’s like Indo-German which works in watershed. References: Mohammad E. et al (2012) have worked out runoff and sediment load deposition in Mosul Dam reservoir which is on river Tigris of Iraq using RUSLE model. Results revels that significant sediment loads enter in the reservoir from this valley. They suggested that to minimize the sediment load entering the reservoir, a check dam is to be constructed in suitable…

    Erosion is the geological process in which Earth's surface is worn down by natural forces like running water, wind, glaciers and waves. Erosion is a key factor in the formation of beaches because erosion moves sediment (sand) from one location to another. There are three major types of coastal erosion; hydraulic action, corrosion and corrosion. Hydraulic action is when waves crashing against a headland causes erosion. Waves enter cracks in the rock and air is compressed into the crack by the…

    The Spit is the longest in the country, reaching 25 km in length. (DEPARTMENT OF CONSERVATION, (n.d)). The Maori name for Farewell Spit is Onetahua which gives an accurate description of what the spit is; heaped up sand. (100% pure New Zealand, (n.d)). The spit is thought to have started forming 14,000 years ago at the end of the ice age. The spit originally started from the sediments in the fast short flowing rivers of the Southern Alps. These sediments, in times of flood, stain the Tasman Sea…

    southern coast until part of Avalon called the Carolina Terrane hit the southern part. These collisions caused the rocks to be metamorphosed. North America and Baltica at this time were located near the equator and North America was moving north into the position it is located in today. The other continents were starting to come together and create another super continent. The Catskill Delta was the delta that carried the Acadian Mountain sediments into the western inland sea. This delta…

Water meets friction and moves extra slow than at the surface near the middle of the stream. 6. Streams erode the landscape by scouring, lifting, abrading, and dissolving. The resulting sediment provides dissolved loads, suspended loads, and bed loads. The total quantity of sediment carried by a stream is its…

    of biodiversity due to overfishing, salinity due to high tides, and el ninos and cyclones. (Environmental Protection Agency, 2005) Deforestation and the excess removal of vegetation has led to a decline in bank stability and an increase in soil erosion, sedimentation, salinity and the extinction of species. Trees and vegetation are components of complex ecosystems that affect almost every species on the planet. When they are degraded, it can set off a devastating chain of events both locally…

    Arches National Park This area is changing and here is why. The story of Arches begins roughly 65 million years ago. At that time, the area was a dry seabed spreading from horizon to horizon. The striking red rock features we see today would have been buried thousands of feet below you, raw material as yet uncarved. Then the landscape slowly began to change due to erosion (National Park Service). The national park lies on top of an underground evaporite layer or salt bed, which is the main…

The further we adventured into the unknown, the more our once unscathed gleaming shoes became soiled. We kept dredging through the dense, and sticky mud that now engulfed the path. The same path that was once created with the type of gravel that crunches and crackles like pop rocks in water. Every dreadful step lead us out of familiarity, inching into an unfamiliar…
