About the Author

Roy Morgan is Emeritus Professor at Cranfield University,Bedfordshire, UK. His research interests cover soil erosionprocesses, the role of vegetation in soil erosion control and soilerosion modelling. He was involved in the development of EUROSEM(the European Soil Erosion Model). He is a Past-President andHonorary Member of the European Society for Soil Conservation andthe author of Soil erosion and conservation (3rd edition,Blackwell 2005).

Dr Mark Nearing has authored more than 200 scientificpapers on the subject of soil erosion over the past 25 years.
