The Characteristics of Runoff and Sediment Yield in Different Land Use Types in Southwest Mountains of Henan Province


Article Preview

By indoor artificial rainfall simulator and slope plot test, the regularity of runoff and sediment yield of five types top soil— timber forest, shrubby grassland, terrace, slope cropland and waste-grassland under six kinds of rainfall intensity were studied in Danjiangkou Reservoir on southwest mountains of Henan Province to provide a scientific basis for comprehensive control of regional soil and water loss, to ensure the safety of water quality in the reservoir. The conclusions were that: (1) Land use types had less influence on the runoff comparing to sediment yield. (2) Sediment yield had obvious power function relationship with the runoff amount. (3) Bed load took up majority in the sediment yield of farmland soil while the bed load almost equaled to the value of silt load in woodland soil.
