Gully erosion within the Racul catchment (Central Moldavian Plateau, Romania)

George Topsa, Lilian Niacsu

Abstract


The Racul catchment is located in the Central Moldavian Plateau, having a total area of 3,990 ha. With the help of aerial photographs and field measurements and observations, 67 gullies were identified, stretching on a 0.29 km2 area (0.7% of the catchment’s total area). The comparative analysis of the information in the topographic maps (1977), aerophotograms (2005, 2009) and topographic levelling (2011) on a representative group of 17 gullies allowed the estimation of some gullying indices, such as gully-head advance and areal gully growth.
