BIBLIOGRAPHIC PAPER REGARDING MONITORING OF SOIL EROSION USING GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY

V. D. Ifrim, M. Voevod

Abstract


One of the most dangerous forms of ecological imbalance is the problem of soil erosion with large economic effects and impact on the environment. For this reason particular importance should be given to monitoring a territory, monitoring the main purpose best estimate of the possibility of erosion processes and soil loss calculation. This can be achieved by using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) that allows the creation of models on the occurrence of erosion processes, estimation of results by continuously changing the input parameters easy, storage and spatial-temporal data analysis and evaluation. Monitoring and evaluation processes of soil erosion is of particular importance as this may be established ways of preventing and combating erosion processes to eliminate economic, environmental and bringing these lands through the improvement works aside. Following the erosion occurs as a series of consequences: diminishing agricultural production, disrupting the ecological balance, fouling ponds and reservoirs, changing water pathways, changing land to be turned into productive lands, increasing flood risks etc.
