Soil erosion studies around houses in four communities in Ghana were carried out from August to November, 2010. Thirty houses were selected from each of the four communities for the study. Measurements of slope and the depth of exposed foundation of houses were done with the help of a string and a tape measure. Data were also obtained through questionnaire and interview of house
Temporal trends in erosion and hydrology for a post-mining landform at Ranger Mine DR Moliere, KG Evans amp GR Willgoose1 Background An important part of rehabilitation planning for mines is the design of a stable landform for waste rock dumps or spoil piles, at the completion of mining, which minimise erosion and environmental impact offsite.
Oct 17, 2016 Use Erosion Control Blankets to Add Vegetation to Slopes. There are many varieties of fiber, biodegradable, and compost blanketsmats on the market today, and they have all been designed with one aim to minimize the effects of water erosion on slopes and embankments. Rolled mats are usually made from mulch that is held together by a fiber mesh.
