Oropeza-Mota2 Index words: soil roughness, water erosion, soil amendments, soil imprinting. SUMMARY Soil erosion by water is a dynamic process consisting of the detachment, transport and deposition of soil particles by rainfall and runoff.
Artificially created roughness, with regular and repeated patterns, has been accomplished by the process of soil imprinting (SI), mainly for the purpose of conserving soil and water and mitigating the impacts of soil degradation.
However, roughness created by soil imprinting devices, similarly to random roughness, tend to disappear with time due to the processes such as splash rainfall erosion, specially under heavy rainfall events and steep slopes.
SI needs to be reinforced to last longer, so more significant effects on soil and water conservation can be achieved.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the combined effect of superficially applying gypsum and polyacrylamide (PAM...
