Soil Erosion in the Alps

Experience gained from case studies (2006–2013)

This publication of the FOEN “Environmental studies” series gives an overview of the knowledge gained on soil erosion in the Alps during several case studies between 2006 to 2013. Many Alpine areas experience an increase in soil erosion, which is demonstrated for three sites in the cantons Uri, Valais and Ticino. Potential causes for the increased erosion susceptibility as well as controlling factors in general are analysed and suitable methods for soil erosion assessment in Alpine areas evaluated.
