dc.description.abstractSoil erosion is the main driving force for global land degradation Soil erosion measurements are an important tool to assess soil loss under sitespecific conditions and evaluate the impact of changes in land use on its magnitude Based on this adjusted management strategies can help to maintain or enhance the state of the soil This work assessed soil loss rates on a plot scale in a 54 km² large agricultural catchment near Gondar Ethiopia At the experimental site stone bunds were implemented in 2011 to prevent severe soil erosion During the rainy season 2012 July and August three soil erosion plots with areas between 300 and 480 m² were installed and soil loss measurements were carried out Soil loss from the three plots was 03 30 and 47 kg m2 respectively Additionally canopy and rock fragment cover hydraulic conductivity as well as other soil properties were determined Based on the data obtained from the field the Water Erosion Prediction Project WEPP model was adjusted and calibrated Furthermore the model will be calibrated with more fieldmeasured data sets of runoff and soil loss in the investigated watershed In the future it will then be used as demonstration tool to evaluate the response of soil erosion to changes in management practices or the implementation of soil and water conservation measures in the Ethiopian Highlandsen_US
