C. Wind Erosion: Wind erosion takes place when soil particles are removed by the kinetic energy of the moving wind. These particles stay in motion till the energy level of the wind drops causing them to be deposited. D. Gravity Erosion: Gravity erosion occurs when soil particles found at a slope gradient are moved due to the force of gravity. This type of erosion usually occurs from high to low levels and is caused by the weight of the soil. E. Water Erosion: The last type of erosion is water erosion.
Desert soils are light in colour. These soils are course-textured, shallow, rocky or gravely and have a good drainage system so there is no subsurface water. These soils are coarse-textured as there is little chemical weathering due to leaching. The finer dust and sand particles are blown elsewhere, leaving heavier pieces behind. These soils are dry soils, as they get little amount of precipitation, thus they do not have high amounts of organic matter.
This is over an order of extent less than the energy consumption of the communication part. Communication/data processing exchange between sensor nodes but more local processing implemented by one sensor node in order to enlarge the lifetime of the WSN. That energy efficient routing determination is more important than simple shortest path routing. Several strategies are prevalently employed for power aware routing in WSNs that Minimizing the energy consumed for each message
The same can be said for the soil that surrounds the water bowls. Although one may expect to find increased activity in the drinking area, one has to consider the impact of excess water on that surrounding soil. This will result in decreased penetration resistance, as we see in figure 1. Soils that are compacted at high moisture contents and high levels of organic matter will have considerably greater strengths than those with lower organic content. (Edwin Ekwue, Robert Birch, Nicholas Chadee, 2014).
1. Introduction Soil erosion is recognized as one of the world’s most serious environmental problems that may lead to several health problems (Pimentel, 2006). It directly reduces land productivity by reducing water availability, soil depth, soil organic content, and essential plant nutrients. It has many off-site effects. Off-site effects result from sedimentation downstream or downwind which reduces the capacity of rivers and drainage ditches, increases the risk of flooding, blocks irrigation canals and shortens the design life of reservoirs.
These soils are characterized by an unstable structure, easily flocculated in water, and very erodible. These soils usually contain high percentage of exchangeable sodium ions which is susceptible to replacement by calcium and aluminium ions. Soil with higher composition of coarse grained particles has higher dispersibility that lead to lower resistance to the internal erosion. Dispersive soils are stabilized with lime and fly ash. The dispersivity of soil is reduced with the addition of lime, pozzolanic material and cement.
The following are some of the most important factors to consider the need of early detection of marine traffic: • The aggressive nature of marine environment is one of the factors in which it requires greater levels of device protection. • Allowing movement of nodes must be made for the cause of tides, waves, vessels, etc. • It is generally necessary to cover large distances, while communications signals are attenuated due to the fact that the sea is an environment in constant motion since the energy consumption is high. • The price of marine based WSN instrumentation is significantly higher than in the land-sited WSN. In spite of all these negative aspects, various studies of monitoring of marine ecosystems using WSNs can be found in reviews and literatures.
Erosion occurs when the top layer of soil is swept away by natural or man-made forces, making it extremely difficult to grow any vegetation on the site. Erosion can turn once healthy, vibrant land into arid, lifeless terrain and further cause landslides and mudslides. Objectives Water, wind and gravity cause the Earth soil particles to move and erode naturally. Humans clearing and moving land for development causes all processes to expedite and intensify. Here at South Africa objectives it divided into many categories because of its functions.
Soil erosion causes poverty. It will cause infertile soil which will make it very difficult for crops to grow. This will in turn cause decreased food supply. 31% of KwaZulu-Natal is already living in poverty. These people will be harshly affected by the decreased in food supply and the numbers will begin to increase as the soil erosion rates
