Research on soil erosion and related problems was carried out within the scope of the DUSER project in Ugogo in semi-arid central Tanzania in the years 1968-74. The present thesis describes and analyses factors of importance for the initiation and acceleration of soil erosion and discusses the geomorphological effects of erosion processes in the semi-arid environment.
