    Abstract

    At the time of heavy rainfall in September, 1985, spectacular gully and associated rill erosion occurred in a field, newly sown with winter barley along downslope cultivation lines, near Barry, Angus. Rainfall intensities exceeding 3 mm hr-1 were recorded during two separate storms in a three-day period. An estimated 88 t of material was removed equivalent to a yield of approximately 14.7 t ha-1 This is believed to be the first quantified account of water erosion of arable land in the Dundee-Arbroath area of the Angus coastal lowlands.
