A flume has been built for studying the erodibility of soils and sediments by gullying. It consists of two boxes containing undisturbed soil samples. One box is set above the other and water from a stilling tank passes over the soil of the upper box and falls onto the soil of the lower box causing lip and channel scour and plunge-pool erosion. The sediment is collected and measured, and a measure of erodibility related to discharge, length of test and sediment yield is thus available.
