In order to carry out a study of the relative efficiency of various erodibility indices, and of the relative erodibility of soils developed in the Peak District of Derbyshire (England), three instruments were developed. These instruments were: a wet-sieve aggregate analyser of the Yoder pattern, a compact laboratory rainfall simulator using spray nozzles, a radiant drying unit using infra-red lamps. The efficiency of the instruments and the validity of the operating -techniques are critically evaluated and suggestions for improvement are advanced.
